Thanks for your patience and enquiry. Yes you are correct, you may make an application to the court for the house not to be sold in light of their being minors involved. Usually, the court may defer a sale until the children attain the age of 18 years.
Can I clarify anything for you? I hope I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
There is no set section of the law that stipulates what age is required in these circumstances. This is really up to the judge’s discretion. In practice asking for the house to be sold when the children attain the age of 18 years is not at all uncommon.
