Hi all, here''s a quick question from me, I''d appreciate your advice on..... 5 properties, one in mine, the other 4 his sole name, but I have beneficial interest, their being part of marital pot. Can anyone tell me if I can apply to Land Reg re all 4 to stop him remortgaging and dissapating assets, or does it only apply to the last marital home, though we lived in all of them? And how would I find out title deeds numbers if it proves I can? All advice, as usual, very much appreciated. Thanks guys and gals!
PS, how can I stop him putting home rights on my own property as he is sure to do once he gets notification from LReg that I have registered my rights... The man only married me for my money, took years of domestic abuse for me to wake up and smell the coffee... I suppose that is why I call myself Mrs Sadness! Thanks again for any advice.
And yes, the problem is I am worth more than him and well aware my money will go into the marital pot! A fact that makes me very angry as a faithful loving wife who put up with years of abuse and his womanising, but that'' the way the cookie crumbles in matrimonial division of assets. I really just want to stop him selling or remortgaging the other marital properties and disappating our assets. He has already made himself voluntarily unemployed though at least pension in payment makes it easier for me now it is capitalised.. he even lied about that. So anyway, any advice, as usual, very gratefully received. Night all.
Registration of matrimonial home rights is necessary only where the property in question is in the sole name of one spouse. Where it is jointly owned, any dealings with the property require the consent of both spouses.
Furthermore it can be used only in relation to a property which is, or has been, the marital home ; you couldn''t do it, for example, in relation to a property investment.
If you think your husband is likely to dispose of property or mortgage it, you can prevent this, but do not rely on the land registry ! The section you want is section 37 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973.
Well, perhaps not. You could perhaps register a pending land action against the properties.
If you want to go down this route, and if you seriously think you think your husband might try to dispose of assets to defeat your claims, then I would say you need legal advice, Mrs Sadness, and promptly. For a start, you need to establish what your share is and that requires an examination of the title deeds.
Wiki has many virtues but there are times when we have to say, this is something we can''t help you with and you need a solicitor.
Thank you for your kind response LittleMrMike, but sadly I am forced due to ill health and economic circumstances to be a LIP throughout. Yes, freezing injunctions, s27, I am aware of, but I think I have left it too late anyway - been seperated for far too long in that he has had ample opportunity to remortgage and liquidate the equity and dispose of it. But thank you for replying, I appreciate your time. Thanks, bye.
You can register a PLA once proceedings have commenced in relation to property. A request for a property adjustment order or lodgment of a Form A should suffice.
This will bring to the notice of any prospective purchaser that the property is the subject of a marital dispute and it may be worth considering as a means of making it a good deal harder for your 2xb to deal with the property.
Hi, if you wish to prevent the sale of a property that you have interest in (e.g through marriage)but is not in your name then you need to put RX1 restrictions on the properties. You can obtain a proprties title no by going onto uk land registry site (make sure you use the .gov one) The forms can be printed on-line. The form is an RX1
You may find that someone at HM Land Registry may be able to help you complete these forms over the phone (it depends on whom you talk to, but worth a try)
Costs £50.00 per property, although may be less as I used legal help to this initially
This should make them ''safe'' until such time that your assetts are split either amicably or via mediation or using the courts
Dear LittleMrMike and Survive, thank you very much for those two most helpful posts: I so appreciate it!
LMM, chicken or pasta? LOL - I could tell you a thing or two about on board catering, and some hilarious stories pertaining to it, especially on the trans- atlantic routes, but I have to keep my identity as anonymous as I can on here!

The whole gauntlet of human personality is here, and so many nice lovely people offering of their time, when most of them going through thier own battle. It is qutie remarkable, the commaraderie ( cant spell, too tired!) I think I may on here for a long time even when my own personal nightmare is over!
