Customer Question

Good Morning ,
Could you please advise , I was divorced in 2005 , I signed over the property to my wife and put a clause into the agreement that if the house was sold before both children were 18 there would be a payment to each child , a charge through the courts was made on the property Also if not sold there would be a payment when the youngest child reached the age of 18 . However we got back together in 2007 and have lived as a family ever since, therefore I would like to cancel the agreement and have the charge removed from the property . please advise
regards
Pete

Hi, thank you for your question. Was the agreement approved by the court? Have you now remarried?

Are you still on line ????
Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for confirming. Unfortunately you are in a difficult position. This is because the court is unable to vary orders or approved settlements where there is a property adjustment order or a lump sum payment.Was there any provision in the order that stated that the order will cease to have effect if she were to cohabit, or anything similar?
