The first house cost £175k I put in £40K equity - my ex partner £3k
I believe she has about £10k mortgage & over payments in here
Outstanding on this mortgage is £100k
The second house cost £207k i put in £35k she put in £2k
I doubt much has been paid down
The rent is £1k per month
After the issue of the first conveyance process the same solicitor effectively transferred her off the first house 'for no value'.
In their final response before i go to the ombudsman - they have claimed that I purchased the second house on her behalf in return for the above 'for no value'. They never put this in writing at the time.
I have also last night drafted a letter to the conveyance company, as in the file notes they submitted they have omitted all the private instructions & correspondence between themselves and my ex, which i believe implicated them for negligence and disregard of their care of duty to myself.
I don't know whether to purchase my ex or the conveyance first .
I spoke to Barclays legal last night, and as my previous solicitor messed around for the last two years, the six year statute of the first property bought March 2009 ends soon
