Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you still on the deed with your ex?
What does the letter from the attorney say?
Ok, I hate to say it, but if the house was ordered sold by a judge as part of a partition action, the legally the receiver would have the right and the power to sell the house as this would be a judicial order from a court.
There is no statue of limitations on a judge's order and if it has taken 10 years, although that is an extremely long time, the order would still be legally binding.
As for not checking on the house after that long, although that would appear to be negligent, it doesn't affect the validity of the order put in place by the judge.
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
