Does anyone know how long this process takes from applying to the court to them implementing the action?

We have a presale agreement in place and have had an offer that satisfies the criteria which I have instructed to accept but my husband has now refused this today at close of play?

Our agreement states that if one party refuses an offer that meets the criteria set out in the agreement the other party can apply to the court for an order for division and sale and the refuser must meet the costs?

My concern is that we will lose the sale if the process is lengthy.

Any experience or advice would be great until my solicitor opens on Monday?

That is rather like answering how long is a piece of string. It depends on the complexities. Your solicitor can give a better answer because he/she works regularly with the local courts although not that many cases are actually decided by the courts so it can be a difficult question even for a solicitor to answer.

Thanks for the reply I just hate the way all the bad news always comes last thing on a Friday.

Having a presale agreement appears to just have been a waste of more time and money then as if it''s contents can''t be actioned within a reasonable time to protect a sale/offer then it''s useless?
