Hi Claire thank you for your time! The partner of my sister has not done anything physically but her influence is very strong on my sister who had initially been happy to share ownership of the house. My reason for saying this is that the sister who has initiated this solicitors letter, advising that a Judge could force the sale of the house, verbally agreed to accept £30k for her share of the house from the younger sister and joint owner. This was witnessed on both occassions by two different people. I was one and the other was the husband of the sister making the offer. Does this verbal agreement made and accepted on two occassions have any legal standing.Thank you again.
House is mortgage free. Property doesnt have its own sewage system septic tank in land owned by another family member. House valued in region of £60-65k. No septic tank may be an issue I thinkl!
