I believe that even if my wife is sole owner and wants to sell the house and is very likely to want all or most of the money from the sale of the house and not a lot for me, if any if she gets her way. The house was purchased outright from the sale of MY (sole owner) house in Australia, and my wife since mortgaged it for an unknown amount - I was aware of it and probably signed something. I got £100,000 from my Mothers death and sale of her house (My Brother got the same). As I was getting close to retiring I wanted to put the money into something that would augment my pension. But My wife started borrowing from my money. Initially she repaid her borrowed money, but later she stopped repaying the money she borrowed and still borrowed the money to pay debts from the shop and even ‘borrowed’ the repaid money until there was little left for my retirement. This was when she put the mortgage on the house.
I hope her solicitor would put her straight about the sole owner still cannot forget the people that have an interest in the finances of the house and the sale of it.
