my husband ( recently married ) still pays the mortgage for a house he moved out of two years ago for an ex girlfriend . He has a legal agreement whereby she paid the deposit on the property and he agreed to pay the mortgage . They lived together in the property for over 4 years . He no longer wants to pay the mortgage and they agreed to sell the house two years ago , however it has not sold and she still lives there rent free whilst he pays the mortgage , from mine/his perspective this is unreasonable as we are paying for her to live in the house and we don't know if she is even trying to sell it . What recourse do we have other than stopping to pay the mortgage and my husband getting a poor credit rating ? Thanks Julie XXXXXXX
There are no children involved .
The house is on the market for 465,00 , the deposit paid was 220,000 by his ex girlfriend , the current mortgage is 200,000. My husband pays 440 GBP per month mortgage
yes the mortgage is in join names
yes the mortgage is in joint names
thanks for your help , we will try the estate agent first as you suggest .
We will then write a letter to her to state we are applying for a court order as per the above , do we need a solicitor to apply for a court order , how does the process work ?
