Let me just review your query and I’ll come back to you with any points I need clarifying in order to be able to answer.
Can you confirm - do you have a final court order stating that the property is to be transferred into your name?
If you have the court order for the transfer and your ex husband refuses to sign the paperwork, then you can apply to court with a D11 application for the judge to sign the papers on his behalf in order to effect the transfer.
You do this under the "liberty to apply" provision at the end of your final court order you have in relation to the matrimonial finances.
The D11 application costs £167 to file and the application form is here:
You state in the application form that you are making an application under the liberty to apply provision as the order cannot be implemented due to your ex refusing to sign the transfer paperwork in respect of the [insert clause number] relevant clause in your court order.
