I live in N Ireland where most people have switched or plan to switch to gas. Oil at the moment is horrendously expensive, about £100 for 100 litres. It's impossible to budget-buy it, or buy small amounts - if you have PAYG gas, it's equally expensive but at least you can just stick a tenner in if you are short. Most buyers would react with dismay if they were told, 'the heating's oil' at the minute!
All this talk of the state of the house is pointless. Unless you can negotiate otherwise the house is owned and would be split 50/50.
Round my way, there are houses that need every inch renovated/repaired, and they are still selling over the market value of a 'sellable' house.
I suspect, given the current market, pretty much any house on the market will sell, and probably for a decent amount too.
A forced sale through the courts is probably the only way to attempt to move this forward (I'm guessing discussing the situation with the ex and coming to a workable solution is impossible).
That should be the first step before court.
