Ask a French Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Yes I still need an answer to this question. What I really would like to know if he does not sign to say he wants to sell the house. How can I legally get him to sign so we can sell the house and go our separate way.
He is holding me to ransom over the house. We had a house together in England which we bought together however he paid 10 per cent into the property and I paid 90 per cent.
However, when we came to France we said we would split the house 50 -50 as he has worked on the house. But I have bought lots of materials and floor and a new Kitchen.
How am I placed with French property law on making him sell asap, instead of him wanting to wait.
I look forward to your reply.
Thanks for getting back to me, but when will you be able to answer the question?
I could not contact you earlier as my partner threw our laptop out of the bedrom window last night, so I had to set up our old computer.
So time is of the essence I need to leave this house soon, but am reluctant as I do not know where I stand legally. The house is in both our names.
I am getting desparate.
Unfortunately, while I understand your predicament and would love to be able to give you some reassurance that you'll get a timely answer, we are always unable to predict when a question will get a response.
There are a lot of variables, one of which being that this is a summer weekend and our French experts may not be at the computer much today.
Presently, your question is open to all French and European lawyers. I will mark it high priority for you, but if this is an actual emergency, local counsel may be your best bet.
So I cannot get a court order to make him sell with an estate agent, in france?
Thanks for your help.
Are you able to give me the name and address and tel no. of a good lawyer in Vire, 14500 normandy? One who could help deal with the situation.
