Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
Unfortunately in your circumstances, you cannot sell the marital home without her consent if you are joint owners, and in my view it is extremely unlikely that you are going to be able to get a financial settlement agreed in court before October, so the situation is going to continue until you can either agree together to sell, or until a court orders a sale.
The first step is to start divorce proceedings, and then you can try mediation to see if you can agree on the house finances, and if not, once the decree nisi has been pronounced, you can use the court to decide the finances.
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
Once the court orders a sale (if that is what it ends up doing), then there will be deadlines to meet, so if she does still stall you will be able to apply to court for the judge to sign if she is refusing to sign.
I don't do calls.
What she needs for a mortgage will depend on the mortgage company.
Please remember that a thread is for one topic, not multiples, you need to open new threads for new topics, not least because if you are asking about an area of law that does not coincide with the query I have answered, I may not be able to answer it.
You're very welcome.
All the best.
