She owns a house and a one bedroom flat in the UK and has a salary of about pounds 4,000.00 per month in the UK (after tax has been deducted).
I own 2 flats in South Africa and I earn about 500 pounds per month on average when I get contract work overseas.
She helped me buy the one flat in South Africa and is now also claimimg back half of it and demand that I see it immediately.
She wants to send my clothes and paintings back to South Africa, where I do contract work at the moment and do not want me to come to the house again.
None of us has any debt. All houses are paid. She gets rent income from one flat in the UK. I get the rent income from one flat in South Africa.
House - 135,000 Sterling
Flat - 70, 000 Sterling
Flat- 40, 000 Sterling
Other flat, can't be sold without permission as I only owe half of a share in the property. My part, should I get permission to sell is worth 50,000 Sterling
No mortgages on any of the houses involved. It is all paid up.
Yes, they are net figures. All morgages have been paid off
I share it with a friend who gave it to me as a gift. I will inherit the property if she dies before me. It is on the coast as part of a company and each owner has one share in the company, which is your land plus house.
We registered half the share in my name at a lawyers' office.
If she does not want to sell the matrimonial home, how will I receive the monies entitled to me?
Clare, if I choose to stay in South Africa and not return to England, how do I get access to a court?
