no she left my dad in the early 70's and he buried he's head in the sand and would not sign any divorce papers so the divorce was passed after 10 years in the 1980's. She now lives in america. they have 4 children between them but i have never met them and my dad wanted nothing to do with them. When they bought the property only one of the children was living at home the rest were employed. When she left the property had no planning permission on it but my dad got that granted in the early 80's.
Well when she left there was no planning permission for the house he put on there and the council was threatening to knock it down so the value of the property was really only the land which was 3 quarters of an acre. so in the 70's was probably not worth more than £5000. After he got planning permission the property value is now about £350,000. There was no finances dealt with at the time. she now lives in the usa. My dad was 84 when he died and the bungalow is in a bad case of disrepair and has a water leak which is down to us to fix. It also has subsidence but we are planning on moving in and doing as much to it as we can but don't really want to if they are going to be able to get us out. We have no assests and live in rented accomodation now so payin them off is not an option as my husband is 52 and due to financial problems not able to get a loan. I have 2 children one is 15 and the other 8.
