Good afternoon and thank you for your question. I'm a solicitor specialising in divorce, separation and financial matters so I'd be happy to offer some guidance.If your ex-wife refuses to sign, you need to write to her and say that you will give her one last chance and she must sign within 7 days. If she fails to do so, you'll make an application to court to enforce the consent order and request costs from her.If she persists, you can also ask the court to order that (if the sale falls through) a judge or a senior solicitor at the firm you're using for the conveyancing sign the transfer deed on her behalf.
The application form you'd need to use us the D11 genet application form. You'd need to attach the consent order and any correspondence to your ex.

That's a link to the D11 application form.

I have allready given her the pre court letter..... how long would a hearing take, could i speed it up, perhaps an order could be made by the court without a hearing?

You could ask for the court to deal with it as a paper exercise but I strongly suspect they will call a hearing. You could mark on the D11 that it needs to be heard urgently because you could lose a sale. How quickly they'll list it is anybody's guess. At the moment, I'm finding even urgent matters are taking 2-3 weeks to be heard.
