Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Are you planning an immediate divorce?
Just for clarity - are there any children involved and what exactly is your offer?
How much is the house worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?
Has your wife had any legal advice?
Ah I see.
If there is not going to be an immediate divorce then there are two options.
You can get your wife to sign a Declaration of Trust which states that whilst the property is in her sole name she holds it on trust for you both.
The other option is to have a Separation Agreement drawn up setting out the financial agreement that has been reached.
When there is a divorce this can then be turned into a Consent Order and sealed by the court
Please ask if you need further details
A solicitor experienced in property law should be able to draw one up
You are most welcome I hope all goes well
