Marital home

Myth

“The house is just in my name and I want to sell it. My wife can’t stop me from doing that.”
Fact
  Fact
Your wife may be advised to register a notice at the Land Registry which would certainly impede any attempts you may make to sell or re-mortgage the property. If the court saw that you had tried to take steps of this sort unilaterally – for example you had tried to transfer it to a family member – they could order the house to be transferred back or grant an injunction preventing you from selling it. They would do this if they believed that you were trying to stop your wife from having her fair share of the assets.
