Areas of Law / Property

I own two-thirds of the house I live in, and my sister owns the other third. There’s a court order for me to sell it. Recently the house suffered some storm damage which I’m having to put right, but the solicitors are accusing me of attempting to put off prospective buyers. They say they’re going to apply to the court for me to vacate the property.

You are under an obligation to sell the property, which might mean selling it in its present, damaged, condition and taking a cash settlement from the insurers, assuming you have made a claim. You would be advised not to do anything that might hinder a sale.
