I think here you want to insist on a sale here and if there is any profit split it.She cannot make mortgage, and you apparently don't need it so selling it now makes real sense.

I don't see any other way out of this to resolve it and get it out of your name here.Sometimes delaying a sale here just means more trouble if it goes into foreclosure.Sell it for what you can get and you are done with the ex here and the house.Court would probably order it anyway if she cannot make payments since loan is in your name.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks good luck and prayers to you.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
