Hi, thank you for your question. Whose the other joint holder of the property?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
it is his ex girlfriend
Expert:  Harris replied 1 month ago.

Thanks for confirming. Unfortunately as they are joint owners he requires her consent to sell - if she does not consent then he can force a sale through the courts using form N1 and a £355 court fee.
