Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
I am afraid that you will need her to co-operate and sign the Transfer, as it is not possible to register anything at the Land Registry without her signature.
If she doesn't co-operate or carries on messing your husband about, the only option he has is to issue Court proceedings in order to obtain an Order /declaration that the property belongs solely to him. Such action is likely to cost thousands of pounds. However, I suggest that you contact her/write to her to say that you have taken legal advice and that unless she signs the Transfer within the next 7 days, you will have no alternative but to issue Court proceedings and will seek costs of any proceedings from her.
Hopefully, the mere threat of Court action will be enough to get her to see sense and sign.
I hope this assists and answers your question.
Thank you for coming back so quickly.
Could you give me a bit more info on the Order/declaration we would need to apply for at court? Is there a form/info I could download from the court service to do this myself if necessary (though I hope the threat of it alone will suffice!)? While a "promise" to seek costs of proceedings from her is one thing, getting the cash may be another.
Even if we don't have to go down this route, fingers crossed, it would be useful to know what it was so now - knowledge is power and power gives confidence.
