Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am asking a question on behalf of my partner. He divorced his ex wife and she bought him out of their house. At this time, things were amicable between them. It was agreed that his name would remain on the mortgage until the deal ran out to stop her getting charged a fee. She is a lawyer and wrote up the minute of agreement for their divorce. They no longer get on and he now has his own lawyer. He has just been told that his partner's mortgage deal has run out and that she has to get his name of the title deeds. This is going to cost my boyfriend £1400 - does this sound right? surely it is not good practice that she wrote the minute of agreement and he would have reason to complain?
