When a house is part of the asset for a debt, is it possible to sell it before the OR forces the sale , to ensure a fair price and more money towards the debt? And secondly, in a joint ownership, if the wife is not involved in the debt is she allowed to keep her share of the house and what percentage would that be?
You will have to speak to the OR obviously, to tell them of your intentions as there will no doubt be a restriction lodged at Land Registry.
Hopefully Lisa Thomas will be along to help but I would suggest you speak to a solicitor for some advice.
The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity. – Ulysses S. Grant
