Topic: Re: clean break/buy to let
Written By: acsrjsk - 3 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Ok thanks. obviously I need to figure out for my proposal on how this could work in reality: I was thinking along the lines of: 1. Every two years parties decides if the property is to be sold and if even one says yes then automatically it has to be sold. 2. Estate agent emails the summary of rental income to both parties on monthly basis. 3. Both parties takes equal risks in terms of ma

Thanks Andyk. I have sent a without prejudice comms to the other side asking if provisionally they will be happy with this sort of approach before going into the details. When you say financially tied to each other - I don't fully understand this. If the consent order says that each party cannot claim on any thing else apart from the share that will be agreed on FMH then that is the only

hi I am thinking about proposing to ex solicitor about switching the FMH mortgae terms to buy to let instead of having this to be sold. I have not thought about the percentage yet. We don't have children and both employed with reasonable income at present. I understand that housing needs to be taken priority but obviously both parties will need to decide (i.e, ex) if buy to let is someti

sorry to reopen a very old topic. Can I ask how would you know if a spouse have removed 20K (using your example) 13 months ago? For example, only I would know what happened in my account and same as with my wife what happened to her account. How can you justify to the court that we need more than 12 months statements? Thanks

Hello I have just attended first shuttle mediation with ex to discuss the future of the jointly owned property, which I have been locked out of. We have a big difference in the valuation She is valuing the property far too low (quoting the value from 3years ago for a London property) and I am valuing the property based on zoopla.

Unfortunately I did. but I was careful not to make any direct links to the outstanding matters, which is basically our jointly owned property. I am not proud of what I did - but at the same time I was provoked to the max. I wanted to know if my case do end up in court for the jointly owned property - will it be accepted as my 'bad' behaviour? or were they referring to such actions will be

Hi Ex solicitor wrote Are they talking about harassment order or referring to the financial proceeding that they are worried that I may go to court? How can they even prove that the emails are from me and would it have any affect on financial proceeding on relation to my behaviour with the emails even if they prove? I am not worried about harassment as I am not going to her email

Hi Thank you so much for replying. I can definetly tell you the way it is going is that they want to negotiate on their terms in my case.

Could I say something along the line of: As indicated in my communications I will not negotiate directly with you and the only route that I am willing to take is mediation. The facts and figures in your letter are inaccurate and once a full disclosure is being made a sensible decision relating to the future of the property can be taken by the parties involved in front of a mediator. Or can

If the court route is taken then the judge decide it based on Matrimonial act clause 25. If you go down the court route I thin
