Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:1. Is there a court order in place - if so what is the exact wording of the order?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Yes there is a court order in place and it said that I was to give my ex 25,000 which I did I was to keep the house for four years then my ex can make me sell up but he only moved out for 3 months and came back and has lived here for just over 8 years now he now says he wants his money so I need to know do I have to pay him the 30,000 even though he has lived here all this time
Expert:  Harris replied 8 months ago.
Thank you for the further information - why did he move back in? The court order appears to be a lump sum order - initially for £25,000 and upon sale of the property a further £30,000. Unfortunately, this is binding as it is ordered by the court and there is no provision to apply to court to vary lump sum orders.I appreciate that this may not be the answer you had hoped for, but if you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
