My son has not been paying child support. After a court

Resolved Question:

My son has not been paying child support. After a court action a charge has been put on the family home by the csa. His ex partner in resident now wants to move on and sell the house and split the monies realised 50/50. I believe neither of them know of the charge. Can this stop the sale and them both from moving on.

Hi, thank you for your question.

The charge itself will not necessarily stop a sale happening, however, upon sale of the property the charge and any mortgage will need to be settled from the proceeds of sale and only then will the equity be released to them for sharing.

I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
