It's in joint names but I was made bankrupt some years ago and I had no equity in the property so my wife bought my interest for £1
Expert:  Aston Lawyer replied 2 years ago.

Thanks for your reply.

Could you let me know why your name was not removed from the title when your wife purchased your half share?

Not sure exactly
Expert:  Aston Lawyer replied 2 years ago.

Hi,

If the property is still in joint names,you are deemed to own 50% each, unless there is a separate document drawn up stating otherwise.

I would suggest that you go back to whichever Solicitor dealt with your Wife's "acquisition".

In the meantime, I am afraid that as your name is ***** ***** title, a third party is entitled to apply to register a Charge against "your share".

I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.

Kind Regards

Al
