I was divorced in 1994 but there was not a financial settlement.

Customer Question

I was divorced in 1994 but there was not a financial settlement. There was violence and I had a broken jaw. My mortgage still has my ex husband on. I don't know what has happened but there will be £19000 approximately to pay at the end of March 2014 it was a repayment mortgage so I am confused? I have tried to speak to the mortgage company but all they say is to get a transfer of equity?? I have paid the mortgage since 1994 all upkeep and improvement works since then. Will it be easy to have him removed how much will it cost and I assume I will need to get a remortgage for the outstanding amount?

Hi Sue
Is it likely that your ex will try and make a financial claim on the property?
