His brother so far, but each time the independent developer offers more my ex. is getting his brother to up the anti. I have it in writing from him that he would let the developer have the plot of land if he adhered to the original plan and he did. My ex's brother also wants to pay the money as a "loan" so he doesn't have to pay any tax!!
I await your response
I get 73% and he gets 27%. The plot of land and the FMH have been valued at between £500k & £550k so even at the top estimate and I stress ESTIMATE he is only entitles to £148,500 and I'm saying he can have £110K now and I pay off the joint mortgage. This will leave me in the FMH with no mortgage and when I sell when my youngest child finished secondary education I'll put the house on the market and he can have what's owing, which will be approximately £38,500.
Await your response.
Sorry if this comes across as being rude, but why does everyone think it's got to be about the money???
I wont a clean break I don't want him, or any member of his family living next door to me!!
He's more subtle than that - Lot's of threats but no physical violence.
I am I to understand that
1) The courts will allow his brother to buy the land, even though they will make even more money off the final sale and I won't see a penny of that? Or can I put a Claw Back Clause into any final agreement?
2) As I have the majority share is my ex. able to force me to sell?
I feel sure if I asked him the answer would be yes, but he wants the land to build a home for him, his wife and their 2 children. He was born and raise a stone's throw from here. He grow up playing football in my garden. His parents and his sister and her family live on the next Lane down in my village.
The house I live in was built by his father 30 years ago and the 2 storey extension that was built 10 years ago was built by him.
So as I keep saying, it's not about the money. It's about family values and security.
