If you are still looking for help with this, I can answer this question?

Okay, so when you sell a property, whether you are the sole registered owner or not, you have to sign a Family Home Declaration. Your husband will almost certainly have to sign it also and so technically you would need his consent to do this.

Did you ever live there together as a married couple?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Yes in that home

Okay, then you will definitely need his consent as it is classed as a Family Home. I know this is very inconvenient. Is he consenting?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
At the moment no
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
He lives overseas

That is very inconvenient as without consent it is a matter of going to court to resolve. Is there anything else I can assist you with?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
No thank you for the help.

My pleasure, I regret that it was not the answer that you were looking for! Please would you kindly rate my response?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
No its not that, i wanted to know before i went tp sell.

No problem at all, happy to help.
