Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
When was the Order made and has the TR1 been prepared?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The order was issued june 2013. I am not sure what a TR1 is

Hi
The TR1 is the document that transfers the ownership - has it actually been prepared?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes it has been prepared and sent to him for signing as I mentioned in my original quesion

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
My apologies - I checked because sometimes people are referring to the Mortgage Companies form - which is not the TR1.
In that case the way forward is to apply to the Court on a form d11

You are asking for an Order that your ex signs the form or in default for an Order that the Judge may do so - and for the TR1 then to be signed.
You can also ask for costs!
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
