I agreed to giving John[ my daughters ex partner] a one third share because when john and my daughter[Katey] changed their mortgage supplier the solicitor said why dont we put the house into 1/3 shares so if anything happened to any one of us the other two would only have to buy out a 1/3 share. I had very little time to think about this, just 3 or 4 minutes
, and I thought that as john was doing a lot of remodelling and updating the property it would be fair to give him a share.the children are Anya 13yrs,and Reilly 10yrs.I have a flat where my daughter and children have been staying with me and my daughter has now gone back to her house.Katey walked out of the house to stay with her sister for a few days,but when she went back to the house the next day john had changed the locks on the doors and said he wont give her a key because he doesn't trust her in the house by herself!!!!!. she then came to stay with me.
Hello Clare, I apologise for not saying that at the beginning of our chat. yes,Katey does want to stay in the house but I think we realise that john is going to make it very difficult. I am not sure of the following answers as I haven't had much input into the money side of the mortgage etc. I can only give you an approximate amount. The house is worth app.£250 thousand pounds and around £183 thousand outstanding.
as far as I can find out the properties are worth around £280 thousand pounds. and they aren't married.
..when you say that one or 'both of you' to use property law are you refering to Katey v john or Katey and I v john ? Do we have to go to court for this service especially as I think john will say no to doing it?and with the second way will Katey have to go to court for that as well because if it means using a solicitor we just dont have the money for it.Would it be difficult to attempt to do the above ourselves or would his solicitor wipe the floor with us?
thankyou so much for your help. We will try the avenues you have suggested and hope we will get somewhere. We wont hesitate to ask ANSWERS again if we need further help, thankyou and goodnight.
