Hi, thanks for your question. Please confirm if you are in England or Wales? Has the financial agreement been approved by the court?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm in England and everything was approved by the court.
Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for confirming. Does it state in the court order when he should transfer the property to your sole name? Is there a mortgage on the property? If so, have you made enquiries with the mortgage company for it to be transferred to your sole name?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is no mortgage it is paid and the court papers just say that the agreement is I get the house

Thanks. I would suggest that you write to him initially to remind him that the court has made the order for a transfer of the property to your sole name and state that if he does not comply then you will be pursuing an application to court due to non-compliance with implementation of the agreement and that you will pursue costs of the application against him.Please provide a positive rating if you found this information helpful. I will not be credited with answering this question without a positive rating. Thank you
