Hello,

My name is Mac. I can help you with your question. First I need a bit more information:

- was a financial order made on your divorce, which included the sale of the house?

- have you spoken to the agent(s) to see what they think the marketing price should be?

No financial order was made on divorce - the marriage was of 3years duration and both agreed to divorce taking assets we'd brought into it, we made a Declaration of Trust on purchase of the property - 60% owned by myself and 40% by my now ex husband. The property has not sold for the asking price of £635,000 in the 18 months since putting it up for sale - he is living in it and running it.

If no financial order was made on divorce, then all your financial claims against one another on divorce remain outstanding. Before I go any further, does that match your understanding of your situation?
