Thank you for your question.

Yes, the way you have to do this is to ask the court to make an order for the sale of the house. If your wife then asks to keep the house it will be for her to apply to the lender to take on the house in her own name.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
