Hi, thank you for your question. What does it state in the financial agreement/order in relation to the sale, marketing and pricing of the home?
Thanks for confirming - you therefore have no obligation to agree to a lower price but if you are advised by the estate agent then this will be a separate matter. If no price can be agreed between you the court will need to intervene.
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
Unfortunately the court will not vary such an order unless you can demonstrate fraud or misrepresentation which has led to this. It may be in your interest to resist this reduction. If the wording of the agent's letter is not their independent opinion then it would not help him.

The key issue here is why the last sale fell through and how realistic the current sale price is.
You should also look at another couple of agents for their opinions on the sale price.
All of this will help you if your ex does go to court.
It is still early days for a forced sale and the court will take into account your housing needs IF you can show that the higher price is achievable with patience.
You do not have to instruct anyone else to deal with an applictaion - if you plan it and have the evidence you can explain the isutaion to the Judge yourself and ask for a further six months before any extreme price reduction
