he does not work as far as I know but he has a 25% share of the house I live in and pay for. he has not lived in it for 6 years and never paid towards it, He is now demanding I sell it for his share which would equate to about 7or8k but it is where me and his son lives and I want to buy him out but cant afford to, so can I force him to hand it to me if he does not pay CSA? or id there any way I can get him to sign it over to me
worth 190,000 mortgage outstanding 153,000
He wont take a smaller amount I have offered him some and he says no. The problem I have if he lets us remain here, surely I will be paying the mortgage all that time and then when I come to sell if I do later on then he will be entitled to more, so I would have spent years paying the mortgae for him to gain out of it later down the line
Yes it is and I have already paid off 20k as it was for £170 + costs at the beginning, he did sign papers to come off the deeds and mortage back in 2008 for nil value but the mortgage provider would not let me do it and I have been trying ever since but cannot do it as I cannot get a mortgage now so I dont want to pay for another 12 years and then he gets a huge amount of money then for something he has never contrbuted to
I have applied to CSA today but as he does not work I know I will get 0% so was hoping they may check if he has savings or assets such as the house instead
no nothing just his share in my home
