Good morning Aston
I emailed my ex husbands solicitor yesterday regarding this matter, please see below her reply:
Thank you for your email. I hope you are well.
I am pleased to confirm we have now been able to deal with the final clearance of the property at*****and following this, have been able to make arrangements for the property to be placed on the market for sale. I confirm I met with the estate agents on Monday last week, and I am assuming that a board has now gone up. The agents seem quite confident that the property is an attractive proposition and therefore will attract attention from the right sort of buyers.
You are absolutely right as part owner of the property, you will need to be a party to the sale, and I confirm any negotiations regarding the agreed sale price or any other issues arising will need to be discussed and agreed in due course. You will also need to sign the sale papers. I note you have referred to your own solicitor and I should be grateful if you would confirm whether you would prefer me to contact them directly regarding the matter if they are dealing with these issues on your behalf (in which case can you please let me have their name and address and the contact details for the fee earner dealing with the matter) or whether you are happy for me to contact you directly in relation to the same.
I confirm I have also been receiving correspondence from Santander regarding the mortgage account and I assume they may have been writing to you directly regarding the current status of the mortgage account? They are aware of the situation but there are arrears on the account which will need to be cleared on completion of the sale. The final completion statement will show details of the deductions made when we get to that stage.
Finally, I confirm my secretary has received a message from Elaine Gilbert over the weekend asking whether she should make arrangements to drop the keys back into the office and we have asked her to do so. I wonder if you could confirm whether you are holding any keys to the property still?
