the divorce papers state the property must be sold and the assets after paying the mortgage off to be split equally between the two of us.
I believe it is part of the financial consent order approved and sealed by the court.
now that is a very good question! At the moment, my son and i live in the property. He is 24 but is unemployed. I am planning to move in with my partner but he doesnt want to come with me. My ex wife is living with her parents and has shown no desire at all to sell the house since we divorced. You would think she would be pushing for the sale to get her half of the proceeds wouldnt you? I can only assume that she just wants me to stay in the house, housing my son so that she doesnt have to have the responsiblity of finding her own place and then housing my son too.
no. the only agreement is the financial consent order that says the house has to be sold and the proceeds split from the profits.
the original valuation was 65,000. However, my ex-wife, for some reason only known to herself would not agree to it going on the market at anything less than 72,000! i had had 3 estate agents out to value the house and none of them had given this price. she wouldnt get an independant valuation and was holding things up during the divorce because of this, To speed things up i agreed to her price to get it on the market and get proceedings started again.
the house has now been on the market for around 3 1/2 years. We have had 3 serious offers for the house in all. 58,000, 62,000 and the latest 60,000. all of which she has refused. the house needs quite a bit of cosmetic work and such that reflects the price. she recently agreed to drop the asking price to 68,000. but i think that was just to fob me off really. so i re-launched the sale with the estate agents, culminating in the offer of 60,000 last week. to which she wont discuss with me or the estate agents.
