Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Have any offers actually been received?
Specifically, we have a consent order that gives my ex-wife and I both conduct of the sell. the consent order specifies that she will receive 70% or GBP160K of the proceeds from the house sell but also specifies we will only consider offers in excess of GBP450K.
The house has now been valued at GBP450K. I am willing to consider lower offers if my wife accepts a pro-rata reduction in her guranteed GBP160K. She is unwilling to do so.
My wife is going to court to attempt to get sole conduct of the sell.
