Selling after Divorce


Going through a divorce or separation can be incredibly stressful, and selling a house in the midst of it can only make things harder.

It’s believed around 42% of marriages end in divorce, and the marital home is one of the most valuable assets that is owned jointly, which can often cause many complications and considerations when it comes to selling.

Selling Your Home After Divorce

In many cases, it may be the case that one of the separated party continues to live in the marital home, particularly if children are involved. In some cases however, there may be no alternative but to sell. 

How A House Is Divided After Divorce

Before a house is put on the market following divorce, it has to be divided. Negotiations will usually start at around 50/50, but that isn’t always agreed with many different factors involved in this. In some cases, one spouse could buy the other out, while others may just want to just sell the home and then divide the proceeds.

Other cases could see one spouse move out, with the other partner receiving other assets. One party could also agree to defer the other assets or receiving balance until the property is sold. This is known as a Mesher Order. 

A Mesher Order puts clear instructions in place to avoid certain circumstances. One for example may be not selling the house until a child has turned 18. This does however mean both spouses are still on the mortgage agreement.
