Assets in Dispute

Property in Joint Names

If a property is in joint names a party may seek advice on things like:-

  • whether their share is any different to the legally stated shares
  • how they can realise their money from the property
  • when they can realise their money. Children or negative equity may be relevant. See common scenarios
  • their next steps i.e. Solicitor's Letters, Mediation, Self Help etc
  • how to properly calculate any equity, where property is being transferred, to ensure the correct sum is received or paid
  • who is responsible for any mortgage | household outgoings

Property in one name only

If a property is in only one party's name then advice may be sought on whether the other party has any claim or interest in the property. If so, then other issues may then arise, such as how to:-

  • protect any potential interest.
  • calculate it.
  • pursue it.

See, common scenarios, for advice on situations that can arise.

Other Assets

There may be other financial issues, including, who is responsible for any debts and whether a party has any interest in any other assets i.e. cars, bank accounts, policies, gifts, personal belongings etc.

We can advise on these matters at an initial interview and thereafter at pay as you go rates. If matters are agreed, a separation agreement may be advisable. See costs for further details.
