My patner's MOA states very clearly thay two days after an offer has been made for the marital home and that one party agrees and the other doesnt ( between the ex Marital couple) that the decision will be made by the Surveyor as to the suitability of the offer and the fairnefis in relaton to the current market. The offer is 3.9% below the home report but he feels it's indicative of the market at this time. We were keen to have an entry date of 20th April as this ties in with the end of the school Easter holidays. My partneners ex wants an entry date of 29th May. The buyers have not yet stipulated an entry date. They have just cited that it is flexible. The offer was made two week ago and my partner immediately accepted as there has been only one viewer at the property and one note of interest.It has been noted as a 'one-time offer'. We are stidl waiting to hear from his exes solicitor. The MOA stipulates that ALL matters pertaining to the sell of the matrimonial ptopertirs go throuh the Estate agent, the Surveyor and the Conveyancing solicitor. So what is holding this deal up? I dont get it. Everyone is wating for the 'get-to'
from The ex wifes solicitor et the MOA doesnt cite her as relevant. We are terrifired as the buyers are going to pull out on Friday if no repsonse fom his ex wifes solicitor is forthcoming Se is off tomorrow and has ignored all of my solicitors requests. We are at the end of out tether \she also works all day at the family court on Fiday. On top of this we have the CHild Werlfare hearing on march 27th - thank the Lord. Please advise! Can the court intervene if one party is not adhering to the extremely costly document my partner pursued?
Finally, his ex wife was taking numerous photographs of me sittting in my car approx 15 mins we were due t pick the girls up. What would she be doing that for? I was sitting on the passemger seat with two dogs on my lap.
The estate agent selling the matrimonial properties has agreed to finish the sale on DP sould it complete, but refuses to deal with the ex-wife any further. Where dies this leave us legally? Can we take a course of action?
