Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
My son has employed a solicitor to force the sale of my home ( we live here together on a joint name mortgage). He is doing this because he wants to remove his name from the mortgage and buy a property with his girlfriend. Unfortunately, I lost my professional job in Feb and so the bank wil no longer entertain me taking over the mortgage in sole name. He is trying to enforce an immediate sale or go to court whereas I want more time (6 mths) to have time to sell many of my possessions as I will have to rent a room locally. I am very upset with him because at 63, I will have little chance to get a mortgage on another property. There is 7 years remaining on current mortgage. Could you please advise where I stand on this issue? Regards XXXXX XXXXX
