Ex husbands tax bill and joint mortgage

(5 Posts)

Please can anyone advise what my best course of action would be.

Divorced from ex husband.

We have a house that is in joint names. He lives in, he pays the mortgage. The plan has always been that he will apply for a new mortgage solely in his name.

I have said to sell and that if there is any profit I don’t want it, I just want off the mortgage. He currently won’t sell as he believes it needs work doing and will not put it on the market until it’s completed.

He has a large outstanding debt with the inland revenue. He has just been declined for a mortgage.

Will the inland revenue seize the house if the debt is not paid?

How will this affect me?

Why should I be doing to protect myself?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

I have no idea about the inland revenue and this is more of a bump for you but if at any point he defaults on the mortgage you can be chased for the money.

Am I force the sale of the house if he defaults?
