Hi, I am currently going through a divorce and we are looking to split the assets. My partner has a villa in Spain which is in her name but with an usofruct and compraventa in place. The usofruct means that her mum has beneficial use until death but ownership is still with my wife.i don’t understand what the compraventa does. Any advice would be welcome.
I believe she is in the process of moving ownership of the villa from her to our children in an attempt to exclude from the pot. I have copies of the land registry documents from Spain that show it is hers.
If she does move the asset, I believe this will be seen as dissolution of assets but I don’t know the repercussions. Any advice would be gratefully received.
