Customer Question

HI Pearl,
Assistant: Where are you located? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Bromley, Kent
Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Looking for directions on a financial order from 2007.
Assistant: Anything else you want the solicitor to know before I connect you?
Customer: FMH was remortgaged on ex wifes name on 2008 with a 10% mesher order in my favour with usual triggers. Property now worth £750k with £200k mortgage. "Best endeavours" to release me from mortgage but 11 years later still refusing. Ex does not earn enough to take on mortgage but a sale would release enough equity to purchase smaller house in area.

Welcome to Just Answer

I am a Solicitor and will assist you.

Please may I ask:

- what were the triggers? Have they been met?

Kind regards

Hi Caroline,
Last trigger is in 3 years when youngest boy leaves secondary school.My question is do I have grounds to return to court for direction or enforcement? Ex wife does not earn enough to take on mortgage but now 11 years later I need to be mortgage free.Mortgage is intetest only and matures in 6 years so not sure how she intends to continue if she claims unable to afford it now.

Hello Garry

Thank you for your response.

Please accept my apologies for my delay in responding to you whilst I have been unavailable.

You need to know that ‘best endeavours’ is not very onerous so you will struggle to enforce that. Your best waiting for the trigger then enforcing a sale in line with that trigger.

Kind regards
