Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be able to assist.
Kindly answer the following questions in order for me to best assist:
Whose name is registered on the deed at land registry.
When was he declared bankrupt?
How long since the bankruptcy did you remain together?
Kindly give me a minute to review and type a response. As this is an email service there may be a slight delay in my response to you. It doe snot mean I am not here.
That was an automated message. Kindly note my early message. I am currently trying to type a fulsome response to you. I ask kidnly for you to be patient.
Thank you for the additional information. If it was signed over to you by the insolvency company it is highly likely that the property is solely in your name. However, as you are not absolutely sure. You may check on this via the land registry office. You may do this by following the below link:
Your situation is not clear-cut. Part of my duty here is to give you clear guidance.
As he is your husband, if his name is not on the deed. He may still argue that the house is matrimonial property and as such he is entitled to an interest in it. The question for the court would be whether he is entitled and if so how much he would be entitled.
Your defence to such an assertion could however be on the basis that whatever interest he would have been entitled to was realised when he became bankrupt and his interest in it was utilised as part of the bankruptcy proceeding.
You are however in a much stronger position by virtue of the bankruptcy proceedings and the fact that he already benefited from any interest in the property.
I do hope I have clarified things for you. Kindly let me know if I may be of further assistance. kindly take the time to rate the services received.
All the best
As noted above, all you will need to do is get a copy of the deed from the Land registry on the deed you will see the name of the owner on the document. If it is solely in your name, your name alone will appear on the document.
