The two teenagers need their own room and the youngest has a very small room. When we separate my youngest is going with me and middle one going with dad. The oldest wants to share her time with us both as she is 16 anyway so does that mean we should get 50/50 share of property as we are sharing the children? I will try to stay here as long as I can but it is not very nice. The only other way would be for me to get builders in and make half of the sitting room a bedroom if it is going to be long term. Do I have the right to do that?
I am waiting a valuation should be out this week but we have more than one property on the premises. Our total mortage is £280,000 but I am guessing the value will be at least £750,000 meaning we each have enough to buy another house once it is sold. We have no other debts.
The other property is rented out to a tenant on shorthold tenancy agreement.
Don't know but don't you have to give 2 months to remove the tenant?
The estate agents that valued the property over a month ago now have still not given me a report or given me any idea as to what it is. Everything time I ring them up or go in they keep making excuses. The last one is they cannot find a comparable property. My divorce is on hold as my solicitor wants to see the valuation before we can do anything else regarding the finances. What can I do? Should I ask my solicitor to ring them or just keep pestering them till they finish it. I am supposed to pay £250 for this valuation will I still have to pay if they have taken so long?
