Thanks for your response.
No I'm not, so the financial order drafted stated that either he took my name off the mortgage within a year otherwise we would sell and share equity equally.
I've not heard of this before, please how do I do that?
I have no wish to sell my property, the buy to let is worth about £109k and mortgage is about £106K.
ok, my property has a mortgage of about £107k, current value is approx £230k
Many thanks for your response Clare,
could you please elaborate on what the risk to my current property is? I'm really keen to protect this as I believe since I bought it before our marriage and he has had no input in the property that he shouldn't be able to make any claim on it. Is this the case?
Also could you give me a high level estimate of the cost/time/process it will take to obtain the order of sale? is it something i can do myself or better to hire a lawyer?
No I am afraid that is not necessarily the case.
I do not actually think your property is at high or even medium risk BUT if he applied to the court for a financial settlement then the court would look at all the assets and decide what a fair division would be - taking into account who brought what to the marriage
best high guess on the costs of the sale application?
£2000- £300) (very roughly)
is that 2000-3000 or 200-300. you wrote 2000-300
Thank you very much for your answer,
I'm ready to mark as finished but just wanted to find out if you provide the sale application service and if so, how to contact you.
Also you didn't mention how long the sale application process may take.
Many thanks and best regards
Further to our conversation above, I've decided to go ahead and apply for an order of sale and to handle the matter myself.
However I would need legal support as you mentioned above, how would that work using this forum?
I've added a monthly subscription to my account now.
I would like to start the process immediately as its become urgent because my ex has not paid the mortgage since February.
What will the first steps be?
