Customer Question

My name is ***** ***** my issue is regards ***** ***** house I own with my ex partner
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: We agreed to sell a house we bought together, all went through and we were due to exchange this week, he has just pulled out just before exchange. I am no longer in the property and he is. I know my 2 options are he either buys me out which he cant do or I need to force him to sell but what would the time frame be and how much would that cost roughly?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Solicitors generally expect a deposit of about $45 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Let me see if I can help and please rate positive.

The process of seeking an order for sale of the property normally takes between 1 and 3 months and can cost usually (if you are instructing a barrister for the hearings) about £3000. On the basis of what you have written there should not be any difficulty in obtaining the order for sale. You can seek that the costs of the application are met by him ( a costs order against him. Whilst you don't necessary get everything which you have spent you should get about 60-70 per cent back). I hope that this helps. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive
