Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK and Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you today.
The court would only order if a sale if there was equity available, or if there are no children living there, and other factors. The court also takes in to account the impact it would have on you if the house was to be sold. The ex would need 3 valuations and then issue court proceedings - the court would list a hearing where you both attend and you can object to a sale of the property. It is quite difficult to get the court to force a sale of a property and there has to be good reasons to do so. I would therefore not worry about it and continue to object to your ex's demands.
