The consent order did not mention anything about renting out the family home
The tenant which she took in was to leave in Aug 2015 but she extended it to June 2016 and took in another tenant
The rent she declared in form e was £400 per month this then increased Tom£2000 per month
The family home was in both our names .

What did the order state in relation to the family home? What was to happen to it?

As you will see I had to pay mortgage ,that's barclays /woolwich a secured loan that's shawbrook bank ,life insurance and tesco loan for solar panels .The consent order states that Diana must pay 10%of the mortgage costs yet she only paid 10%of the barclays /woolwich mortgage and nothing of the secured loan with shawbrook is this a breach of the consent order

Are you able to attach page 3 of the order onwards?

Did you get all 8 pages

Yes, thank you that is very helpful. From what I can see, the home has not been sold. Therefore, under paragraph 26 it states that she is to pay you 10% of the monthly mortgage payments on a monthly basis from 16 February 2016 until completion. It makes no mention that she is to pay you 10% of any of the other loans that are outstanding. In the order at paragraphs 23(ii), (iii) and (iv) it states that these three are "loans" and not mortgages, therefore it would not be for her to meet 10% of these debts.

However, she has obviously breached her duty of full and frank disclosure and if you believe that this would have significantly altered the financial agreement you can apply back to court to have the consent order reviewed. In any event, her continued rental of the home may prevent a quick sale of the home thereby preventing you from implementing the order and realising your interest as agreed.

You can apply to court to have it reviewed under form D11 and a £155 court fee.

I did forget one thing the house sold on 3/06/2016 so is June payment due .

It depends whether the mortgage payment for June had to be made prior to the sale or not.
