Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How was the arrangement documented and how did she get the money without signing the paperwork?
But you do have a contract - what is the wording?
That is excellent news.
Have you resolved the mortgage issue and has the TR1 been prepared?
Can you NOW get her released from the mortgage?
I am sorry I should have been more clear.
The starting point is to approach the Mortgage Company to see if they will agree to release her from the mortgage - unless of course you are intending to remortgage the property in any event.
If that is sorted then you can indeed apply to the court using the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act for an Order that the property is transferred into your sole name - and to ask the Judge signs the document if your ex still fails to do so
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
