no i am selling property and we are splitting whats left

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

she has rold me i hjave to pay 2/3 of all billss till it sells but i wont get more oif the proceeds from the sale which seams unfair

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
I am afraid that you cannot force her to pay more than she wishes - and given that her earnings are less than hers then her suggestion is not unreasonable.
I am sorry I know that this is not fair - but there is no way of resolving this - the Court would see this as a viable solution in the short term
Please ask if you need further details
