Hello

The simple answer is no. if your ex partners name is ***** ***** title deed and/or the mortgage, her signature would be required in order for you to sell.

The only exception to this, is if a court were to direct otherwise.

I hope I was able to assist.

Kindly let me know if I may be of further assistance.

Kindly take the time to rate the services received.

Best wishes
