A bit of a long shot but you never know, someone may have some advice.
I divorced a little over a year ago. A financial settlement was reached however, my ex and I owned a property in Spain. With the state of the property market it was pretty much impossible to arrive at a value for the property. Suffice to say you need a buyer for something to be worth something.
Anyway, the settlement stated that the home should be kept until such time that it could be sold.
The problem that I face is that the house is in desperate need of renovation, leaking roofs, failed electrics etc. To this point I have funded the emergency repairs with my ex contributing nothing.
I have made what I consider to be a sensible offer to buy my ex''s share of the property but have received s straight no.
Is there anything that I can do to force my ex''s hand as it seems so unfair that I am continually paying out money whilst my ex continues to enjoy its use without making any financial contribution whatsoever?
