Not entirely sure but it has to do with the ex wife and him not paying some sort of maintenance. They are divorced.
all the documents we signed indicated that the husband was the owner. There was no mention of the wife until now.
No. My understanding from the transfer lawyers is that they are trying to get the interdict lifted. But because the husband does not want to pay the ex-wife whatever money he owes her he is now asking the transfer lawyers if he can get more for the house.
This is what is upsetting us because we are not sure now if he is the one holding up the process or that he is the one being stubborn therefore refusing to agree with the ex-wife so taht the interdict can be lifted.
We moved into the house in March after being told that the bond is going to be registered in April It is now almost September. We are paying occupational rent which could be going towards our bond and what is also concerning for us is that our approval from the bank is valid for 12 months and that will expire in Decemeber. The transfering attorneys keep promising us that the sale will go through but this has been going on since April.
We are worried what if Decemeber comes then what? or maybe he can tell us that he retracts his offer...
Hi. I just found out that it is an attchment pursuant a civil judgement.
There will be no short fall.
It seems as though the seller does not want it lifted. He does not want his ex wife to benefit in any way. Hence why he is now ducking and diving.
No I dont. Can she do that?
No I dont. Wasnt even aware she could do that.
One last question. Wat if the wife is overseas, which I am tild she is?
