Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be of assistance.
Have you commenced divorce proceedings? Is there a court order in place re the properties already or is this something that is being informally agreed by you both?
Thank you for the additional information.
He seems to me that he is in breach of the court order. he is as liable for the mortgage repayment as are you. You may return to the court to vary the orders with respect to the properties. You may also ask for him to take over the property from you in its entirety which would include taking over any mortgage obligation, failing which, you could ask the court to order that the property be sold on the open market .
Because of the nature of such an application, I recommend strongly that you instruct a solicitor to assist you with such an application.
I hope I was able to put things into perspective for you.
Kindly let me know if I may be of further assistance.

They are not treated as one property but two distinct properties, that is why two separate orders were made. he would still therefore be entitled to the equity in the property in the UK as per the order you consented to. With respect to the property in Cyprus, if he is not paying that mortgage you should take legal action against him to pay that debt.
You are most welcome.
That is correct based on the order of the court, which you have stated the house in the UK is his.
Please see my initial guidance where I advised that you should instruct a solicitor based on the nature of the application that needs to be made.
