Married in Nigeria and currently divorcing my husband in Nigeria.

Customer Question

Married in Nigeria and currently divorcing my husband in Nigeria. However, my four children school in the UK and my husband owns properties in the UK as well as in Nigeria.

I have registered charges on all his UK properties and would like to know whether my husband is able to remove those charges on his UK properties because I am resident overseas?

I live in Nigeria.

Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
What sort of charge did you place on the UK properties?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I registered my interest with the UK Land Registry on all my husband's properties to prevent him selling without my knowledge until the divorce is settled.



The properties are in his name only.

Hi
I understand that but can you tell me what type of restriction you registered?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Sorry Clare, l wrote to the Land Registry to notify them of my interest on my husband's properties but was told that I could only put a 'notice' on the property I resided in.


 


Hence, it is a letter notifying the Land Registry of my interest in the property.

Hi
Sorry - just for clarity - you have not actually registered anything using the correct forms?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

That's correct, no for were used.


 


Just a letter informing the land registry of my interest in the property as my husband is trying to sell the property in question.

Hi
I am afraid that has no force at all.
How far has the financial application in Nigeria reached?
