I don't know, and guess it depends what value ex partner places on them.
We have gone to court and there is a court order to sell the house as ex partner was on the mortgage. The house is due to exchange/complete soon , the ex has a minority share in equity.
The question is more to do with can I offer to sell the photos to ex partner at a price I choose even if its several thousand pounds?
Its not a 'he'.
I dont understand where the threat or blackmail comes into it.
My offer to possibly sell the photos to her would be along the lines of:
There is a possibility some photographs may be able to be recovered from a hard drive.
If any photos are able to be recovered I am willing to sell to you the copyright of any photos with you or your family members in on the following basis:
1st photo £4,000
2nd photo £3,500
3rd photo £1,500
4th to 100th photo + £1.00 each
101st and over £1.00
If she does not want to accept the offer then thats up to her and I assume she would be able to make a counter offer which I would be be able to accep or reject?
