Hiya, am new to this. Am now divorced and have been for a number of months. We have no children and all was settled fairly amicably.
I owned a property before we met which I subsequently added his name to the mortgage/deeds in 2010, we divorced in 2011(short marriage only 2 years!)
As part of the divorce settlement he kept the savings and he signed the house back over to me, the deeds and mortgage are now solely in my name. As well as bringing the property into the marriage I paid 2 thirds of the mortgage throughout the marriage and since he moved out I paid it solely on my own. The transfer deed is due to be completed this week. MY question is as we are now divorced and the house will be signed over to me completely and the mortgage my responsibility, can he have any future claim on what will be my property? Any advice and help will be appreciated.
What you need is a Consent Order, it does not sound as though you have one?, the order removes potential future claims, in your case this would be a Clean Break order.
If you don`t have one even though you are both divorced one or the other has a right to make a future claim in court, it does not mean any future claim would be successful only possible, for peace of mind for you both have the order written by a solicitor, wiki offer the solicitor service fro £139 so not expensive.
