Reply To: ex refused to sign transfer of equity
Has the consent order been signed by a judge? if so then once his name is removed from the house and deeds and has his money (do not hand anything over until you get notification that his name is off the house) he then cannot touch you and it is a legal document.
I’ve had a consent order done on my house and it agreed that I would pay a lump sum to the ex in exchange for the house. The house is all in my name now and so it means that if I choose to sell the house, my ex cannot take me to court for more money.
Hope that helps. if you need to speak to a solicitor, then use the free time that they offer. some do 30mins for free and some do an hour. they will be able to help you more, if needed.
Always here if you want to chat more.
