Hello - What is her financial situation that has become problematic? are you both needing to remortgage?
While she may be able to remove her name from the deeds, even the court cannot order her removed from the mortgage if the lender will not agree. If that’s the case, then the only option is for those properties to be sold. The court may, in the short term, order her to “use best endeavours” to remove her name from the mortgage and to pay the mortgage and indemnify you in the interim. If she stops paying the mortgage, then you would be quite entitled to take her to court and apply for an order for sale to compel her to sell it and remove you from the mortgage.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
