Topic: Re: Time is running out, can I force sale of property?
Written By: undlou - 20 days ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Hi David, Thank you for your reply. If the forms do arrive moments after the due date, it may take a few weeks before I get a completion date. What could happen if weeks have passed the due date and the lump sum still hasn't been paid but the TR1 form is signed? Thank you.

Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Good morning, My ex-husband had 56 days to pay me a lump sum by way of a re-mortgage. We agreed (with solicitors) that I was to sign the house over to my ex and wait for a payment (not simultaneously). I had signed the TR1 form early this month but unfortunately, my ex's remortgaging company lost it. I spoke with his case manager who said he will need to send a new TR1 form out to be signed by

You are required to complete a financial form in mediation. You both have your first meeting alone, then the second meeting is when you each exchange your financial positions. I wish I pushed to do it in mediation as I would have saved a lot of money doing so. Just be fully cooperative and if you are not happy with how things are going in mediation, just refuse to return. It's worth giving it a

You really want to make sure you're covering yourself, a consent order is not the right thing to try and cut costs on in my opinion.

I am in a similar position. Our consent order is still to be sent to the courts by the other side. My solicitor has asked me to sign the TR1 form to sign the house over to my ex, and in return, he is to pay me a lump sum. What will happen if I sign the TR1 form and the consent order is rejected?

What will the judge ask for? Will only one party need to reply to the judge, or both? When will the judge require both parties to attend a hearing? I have a feeling ours will be rejected due to my ex husband earning 4x me, in less debt than I am and getting 25% more than me. My ex-husband paid off our joint debt after we separated and I am paying him back my half, however, this wasn't expl

Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Hello David, Thank you for your reply. That was a big error on my part, I was concentrating a little too much on the wording of the consent order rather than the figure. It is possible that as I have seen that figure before in previous correspondences, it didn't quite stand out like the other errors. That's reassuring, thank you.

Hello everyone, Last year my XH and I came to an agreement with the help of our solicitors. His solictor wrote to mine with the offered figure and my solicitor replied accepting their offer but quoted the wrong amount. His solicitor later replied also quoting the wrong amountt so my solicitor then quickly replied correcting her mistake. We now have a consent order which I signed and returne

It depends on how busy the court is at that time. Some courts can take from 8-10 weeks. Just be patient (hard I know) and listen to your solicitor as (s)he knows best. All the best.

You can only be honest. The judge will pick up on lies, they have seen every trick in the book. I'm sure your husband would need to provide sufficient evidence to prove his case.

He has given me two options now, a lump sum to buy me out or to sell the house and split the equity after marital debt has been paid. We both agreed to not go to court as we both agree we don't want to waste our money. Thanks Bubblegum, you have been very helpful.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate your advice. In mediation he only offered me the total amount of my debt, that would had left him debt free and with £26k. His reasoning for this offer was he paid more into the house as he is the higher earner. Also he carried on paying the mortgage for a year after I moved out the home. I am hoping to achieve just that bubblegum, £13k each and both debt fr

The equity wont be completely wiped out by the debts, there will still be approx £26k minus fees if the house is sold. You are right, it isn't millions and for most people it isn't worth fighting for, but its worth everything to me (a single mum trying to start over again). I just want a realistic possible outcome if this was to go to court without solicitors. Thanks
