sorry history lesson. my wife and i split 2 1/2 years and on reasonable terms. This has changed in the last six months. I have a deed of speration and this has been complied with my ex been paid out. I am about to sell the house but her name is still on the deeds and she will not sign the tr1 or details of the property forms required to sell the property. I have asked my solicitor to send a letter requesting her to sign. however her solicitor advises not too as she maybe liable. what next ????

Liable for what? Surely a letter confirming you will be liable for any costs will allow the sale to proceed.

I''m in a similar position, already divorced, house is sold and she just needs to sign transfer papers and the contract. Neither of us live in the house, we agreed to split proceeds after fees 50:50. Surely there''s a way to force the sale through: there''s no rational reason for her not to. It''s spite. If she won''t sign, can I force her to take over the property and all the bills and liabilities? Really can''t afford a solicitor. Any help appreciated!
