How to remove ex from mortgage and deeds
Please bear with me this is a bit complicated.
Bought house with ex 14 years ago, she left 10 years ago. I paid her off from the house by getting extra borrowing on the mortgage. We told the mortgage company the money was for home improvements.
She is still on the mortgage and deeds and has recently instructed a solicitor claiming her share of the equity stating she has never been paid anything and we took the extra money out jointly for home improvements. I offered her £5k, she refused and is now going for an order of sale. I have ignored all letters from her new solicitor.
Can she lie like this and claim money from the house? There is currently £160k equity, she says she doesn't want half but around £40k.
Any thoughts? By ignoring the letters I'm hoping she will get bored and just sign it over.Report
