Did you transfer the property into her name and have a charge on the property for your share?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The court awarded me 25%
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

I understand that

Did you then sign the property into her sole name with you having a Charge on the property?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I don't think l did
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Ok

Have you obtained the Office Copy Entries for the property to check what they say?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I haven't.
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

The problem that you face is that even the court may not still have a copy of the Order.

Your starting point is to apply for a copy of the Decree Absolute using the form detailed here

https://www.gov.uk/copy-decree-absolute-final-order

You can then use the Court number to contact the court that dealt with the matter and see if they still have a copy.

At the same time you can obtain a copy of the Office Copy Entries from the Land Registry

https://www.gov.uk/search-property-information-land-registry

There is a good possibility that your interest in Registered which will allow you to take the necessary steps to call for the sale of the property

Please ask if you need further details
