Hi, thank you for your question. How much equity is in the property nd is the solicitor jointly instructed.
Thank you for confirming. As you are jointly instructing the solicitors you will need to check their terms and conditions on how this will be settled - it would be usual that if the bill remains unpaid the solicitors will pursue a claim against both of you to recover the costs. Furthermore, as it is a jointly owned property it would be expected that he would share the costs of sale and if you are left to pay for it all then you will have grounds to pursue a claim in the small claims court here: https://www.gov.uk/make-money-claim-online
