If he continues to send threatening texts, refer the matter to the police because he is harassing you. You wanting warned under the Protection from Harassment Act.
Because of the comments the judge made back in December, it is unlikely that he could take you to court to enforce anything and could not get costs awarded against you.
On the contrary, in view of those comments, it’s likely to be the other way round.
What you might want to do is tell him that he has 4 weeks to come up with a mortgage offer and confirmation of that from his solicitor to you, failing which, you will make the application to court for an order for sale under the Trust of Land Appointment of Trustees Act without further notice and you will asked the court to award costs against him. If he can’t come up with a mortgage after 7 years and if he has made the application again now, and there is no offer forthcoming within 4 weeks, he is not going to get one. If you don’t do something about this, it will be another seven years and you will still be in the same situation.
He may take more notice of that threat comes from a solicitor because the solicitor will also tell him that all future correspondence must go through them and not through you and that he should contact you again by text or in any other way.
Can I clarify anything for you?
