Hi, I am not really sure about the Financial order.
my solicitor completed a clean break, the house was signed over to my ex, passing equity on the property to her only.
she in theory is free to do with the house what she liked.
the only thing left was my name on the mortgage, my solicitor did state that if any issues arose we could sue her for any moneys that the mortgage lender chased me for , what ever that meant.
my ex wife uses the property as a base for her child minding business, and being self employed with not a massive income or what she shows on her books, falls short for mortgaging in her own name.
we have 2 children together 7 and 10, who we share and financial agreements are in place for maintenance via a private arrangement.
is there a loop hole, or legal arrangement that can be put in place to allow me to keep my name on the mortgage to keep things tidy, but free me from any come back, or free me to move on and get a mortgage in my own name with my new partner and baby.
I am concerned that if I did get one with funds I'd be allowed to borrow, that the bank could chase me and take this away if my ex-wife came into financial difficulties in the future.
the house is valued approx. £220k, and she refused £205k at our time of the divorce as she was holding out for more, or planned to buy this with her new partner that has not worked out.
I hope you can help.
please let me know as remortgaging is a no go for her and it is now seriously damaging my current relationship.
