Selling A House After Divorce
Divorce is one of the most painful and distressing experiences for anyone to have to go through, it affects not only those couples who are separating but their immediate and extended family as well. Unfortunately, it is almost as likely that a newly married couple will separate as they will stay together with as many as 42% of marriages ending in divorce according to the Office for National Statistics.
The emotional strain of divorce is, at least, the endpoint for months or sometimes even years of unhappy marriage and should, instead, be viewed positively as an opportunity to start afresh. British divorcees should also take solace from the fact that they are able to get divorced with relatively few obstacles. For some across the world, divorce is a luxury afforded only after jumping through many draconian and ridiculous loops, or not at all in the case of the Philippines, where divorce is illegal!
Even after the decision to separate has been made, there are many more decisions that need to be made before ties are completely cut. Often when divorcing couples cannot come to amicable arrangements on their own, legal proceedings are required to determine the fair division of assets. The most valuable asset usually being the home, for which there are three options that are most commonly employed. Briefly, these are either to sell the property and divide the money, to rent the property and split the income or for one party to buy out the other.

Understandably, the decision to sell the property is often favoured so that those involved are able to make a clean break and move on from what is an extremely difficult and upsetting time. The process of selling a house, however, is a long, laborious and stressful task at the best of times, all of which is heightened when this involves regular correspondence with an ex-partner.
