Good morning Clare
I am the son-in-law trying to broker the deal primarily representing the female in this.
The order was made at the point of divorce around Feb 2011. The order stated that the property was to be sold and the proceeds split 60/40%. It has taken this long to find a buyer. However a buyer was found and both parties agreed the price. At that point the husband was still occupying the home and agreed to find alternative accommodation believing that the local council would automatically find him a property to fulfil his every need! I managed to speed up this process by attending meetings etc and the council duly offerered accommodation which was turned down by the husband.
It looks like we will lose the buyer and incur costs. To prevent this happening again as the husband is " sitting pretty" we would like to enforce the court order and have the husband removed for the property. You advice and timings would be appreciated.
Thank you Clare
Can I do this myself or do I need a solicitor?
