hi i am reviewing your question

it is not my expertise. i am going to opted out your question for other experts to help you.

Hello, my name is Marcus.

I presume the family home is in your wife's sole name.

On the basis that you have a Matrimonial Home Rights notice registered in your favour means that the house cannot be sold without your permission.

Just one observation is thst a Matrimonial Home Rights Notice can be removed once a Decree Absolute at which time a caution can be registered instead.

Thank you.

Marcus.

i only applied for home rights last week abd what does a caution mean please

Hello,

If you want to protect your interest in a property then you do it by either a matrimonial home rights notice if you want married or a restriction - sorry not caution - at any other times.

As you are married then a Matrimonial Home Rights Notice is the best way to protect your interest.

I just commented that a MHRN can be removed when a Decree Absolute and it that happens we can register a restriction to continue your protection.

Thank you.

but will i be protected until land registry sort home rights thanks

Hello,

Technically not but it should only take a few days for your application to be registered.

It is unlikely that she can do a great deal in that time.

Thank you.

Marcus.

ok thank you it was just that in line it can take up to 12 week
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
i meant it said on line it can take 12 weeks

Hello,

It maybe worth calling the Land Registry. The longest I have known it has taken is 5 days.

Thank you. Marcus.
