IF A PROPERTY IS REGISTERED IN JOINT NAMES AND ONE PARTNER

This answer was rated:

IF A PROPERTY IS REGISTERED IN JOINT NAMES AND ONE PARTNER HAS DEBTS, CAN A LEIN BE PLACED ON PROPERTY TO THE EXTENT OF MORE THAN THE 50%?
Hi,

Thanks for your question.

If the other (non-indebted) co-owner did not put their name to the loans or personally guarantee the loans then any application by the creditors to register a charge against the title to the property would only be against the indebted co-owner’s interest in the property.

This means that the interest of the non-indebted co owner could be protected and therefore would remain unaffected. In the event that an order for sale over the property was obtained then the non-indebted co-owner would receive the appropriate amount of the proceeds of sale according to their percentage interest in the property.
