    Matrimonial Home Rights Order

    Matrimonial Home Rights Order 29th Oct 17 at 1:15 PM
    Two days before my offer on a house was accepted in mid August, the vendor's wife placed a charge on the title deeds. The vendor would have been informed of this within five days by the Land Registry but never informed me. I only learned of this when I received a copy of the Register of Title last Friday.

    The vendor completed a property information form on 5th October which I also received last Friday in which he declared that no-one had a claim over the property.

    I have since spent over £1200 on surveys, searches, etc. this month which I would not have done if the vendor had informed me in a timely manner of this charge.

    I have asked my solicitor to make enquiries as to the vendor's wife's intentions, but foresee delays in completion and the possibility of my buyer withdrawing.

    Has anyone else been in a similar situation?

    Thank you, but I am used to it. If you look at some of the stuff we get on the private parking board you will see my point.

    Maybe i missed it but did you explain why you pulled out of the purchase? As on the face of it the most likely thing to happen was that when you bought the house the money was distributed in a different way than was originally envisaged but that wouldn't affect you.

    Or was it that because of the charge the vendor now was unable to proceed with his onward purchase and you knew this and therefore your purchase was going to fall through?

    An MRO prevents the sale without the other person's permission. And I'm guessing other person won't give permission until there is agreement on what share they get.

    I did not pull out, a HRN scuppers the transaction. AFAIAA the vendor had no onward purchase.

    Luckily the move is still on track as I was able to find another house.
