Hi
What happened in July - was there a Court hearing?
Clare
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes when we divorced she got the house everything in it.... then there were triggers if someone moved in. or she remarried or finance situation changed and when the children finished school

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
Did you agree to that - or did the Judge decide the matter?
Clare
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i agreed to it din.t want to upset anyone i guess there.s nothing i can do now

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
I am afraid that unless the partner does move in - or your ex gets a well paid job that will allow her to remortgage the property - there is nothing that you can do but wait.
It is what the court would have done in any event - so do not feel that you were bullied into a worse settlement than you woudl otherwise have got.
Please ask if you need further details
Clare
