my fiancee has a property with a ex partner. he has an IVA and because he hasnt paid this they have put his 25K debt on the property. they have been apart for 4 years. Because of his debt my fiancee is the one suffering from this affecting her creit rating and also the house is stuck in limbo, it will also affect her when remortage is due. As this is all down to him and his debt is there anyway of getting him off the mortage of frocing bankruptcy on him. My fiancee is stuck and tied to him he wont sign the house over or sell it as it is 10k in negative equity. He wont pay for repairs as he is broke and when remortage is due it will be sky high because of his iva and debt he has put on theproperty. He wont go bankrupt so his debt is affecting my fiancee its not right my fiancee should be paying for this from an ex from 4 years and his debt. Any advice please either forcing bankruptcy or getting him off the mortage

many thanks for your time

Answer:  You may want to have her speak to a solicitor as to my knowledge, unless the mortgage company allows him to be removed, or she re-mortgages, he is on there.


Making him bankrupt will not change this either, as secured debts are not included in bankruptcy, and if there is equity in the property (althoguh you states there is not), this could complicate matters even more.


I hope this has answered your question.

Our Services

If you have a serious debt problem, bankruptcy can free you from your debts within 12 months. As a solution for dealing with serious debt, bankruptcy is a last resort. Other debt solutions need to be explored first, to help determine if bankruptcy is the right debt solution for you.


Your financial affairs are put into the hands of an Official Receiver or Trustee, who will control all your assets - and if you own a property, this will also be included. These will be sold and the money used to pay as much as possible to your creditors.


There are consequences to bankruptcy which will affect your finances and work life. You may struggle to borrow money, for example, and will not be able to apply for certain jobs.


For some, bankruptcy is the right option and will put an end to pressure from creditors. Our team of experts are on hand to advise on the best solution to your debt problems - call now on 0800 002 9951.
