Hi, thank you for your question. As the property is jointly owned you are entitled to access to the property unless there is a court order (eg. an occupation order) excluding you from returning to the property. In the event that she does not allow you access, you would be entitled to force your way in using a locksmith - however, this would not be the ideal way forward as it could cause animosity between you.
In the event that there is no way to gain access and she continues to prevent a sale then you would need to apply again to the family court to enforce the court order and for further directions for her to allow access - this can be done using form D11 and a £155 court fee.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.

The case number ***** be the same as the one on the order.
In relation to the order your asking for, you can state for enforcement of the previous order and for her to provide access to the property as well as thinking about having a penal notice attached which will allow you to apply for committal if she does not abide by the terms - consequences will be a fine, seizure of assets or imprisonment.
