Please let me know if you require any other info. Thank you clare
Hi Clare, They live in Corfe Mullen just a couple of miles from our property in Merley, Dorset. The reason we moved there was that they have a large house, with a large mortgage to go with it. They used to use it as a b&b, now due to their age they have no more income except a small pension from her dad. We moved there to help them out by paying a rent to them. They do not want to sell the property so we moved there so they didn't have to. Now things have gone pear shaped my wife wants a divorce but doesn't want to sell our property due to her parents situation. She has said that she is happy for me to stay there and live, but as you can imagine that is not what I want and I need to sell the property so that I am able to move out.
Hi Clare, I have the paperwork for the divorce which I have refused to sign because I want to sell the property. I have discussed mediation with her but she refuses to do that as I know she is thinking about her parents. How do I go about applying to the court for this to happen
The reasons was that I haven't given her any affection over the last couple of years and that I have taken money from the joint account without her consent. They are absolute rubbish, she has been seeing someone else for months. It really doesn't matter as she doesn't love me anymore and wants a divorce. I just want to sell the property we have and try and start again. I do love her very much but she wants to end it. I just want to go ahead and sell the property we have and take the equity that is mine and start again
Hi Clare, one last thing. can I at least put the house up for sale as she knows it will have to be sold anyway. Also as you can imagine I am finding it very hard to live here and my only way out is with my share of the equity, is there anyway of enforcing this due to the circumstances that I have been put under living with her parents
