    House listed for sale - Owner not signed anything to agree this

    House listed for sale - Owner not signed anything to agree this 15th May 18 at 8:06 PM
    Hi all here is my original question - on behalf of a friend who is having a horrendous time.

    PS - apologies to those I offended for trying to delete the post originally??!!!


    Hi a friend of mine has a home and her ex hub has thrown her out recently, changing the locks and not allowing her entrance into her home (the ex is not the homeowner and is not listed on the deeds)

    Today my friend was shocked to discover the family home has now been listed for sale via a local EA.

    My obvious question is - is he allowed to do this? Surely the EA would require documents to be signed by the actual owner of the home?

    Pippinh maybe you don't realise but its regarded as a Very Bad Thing on all Internet forums, not just this one, to remove your post just because the questions been answered. Because someone else with the same question ina few weeks or months time won't be able to find this question, and benefit from the answers

    They registered yesterday, asked the question, got an answer, deleted the post, and immediately logged out.

    I doubt we will see them again.

    All very well for those as clever as you, davidmcn, who know what that is and how to do it. Unfortunately, I do not number among such () but thank you.

    Hi LandyAndy - I'm still here - I've been at work today sorry about that!

    I've also re-edited the post to show the original text. I always feel bad if I think I have offended people but your words have baffled me - we won't be seeing them again?

    I won't say anymore. Thanks to all who originally provided advice for me to pass on to my pal x

    If you want the whole thread deleted because your friend is concerned about her privacy then contact the forum team. They have the option of deleting if the reason is valid.

    Just for info, there's a bit of a history of new posters popping up and then deleting. Some seem to be making up scenarios for their own purpose, and others strop off out when they don't get the answers they want to hear. You seem to have inadvertently triggered people's scepticism due to this - don't take it personally.

    Thanks Elsien - had a killer of a day at work and had tea, sat down, logged on and I admittedly felt shocked haha - I should have read the rules BEFORE posting!

    I've re-edited the original post now so hopefully people may find the advice people have given useful, in future xx

    Good on you for reinstating the original post. As others have said, it can be quite miffing when threads, or parts of threads, are deleted after people have given of their free time to provide helpful answers and advice. As someone pointed out, the advice is also helpful for other people who search the forum at a later date, not just for the OP.

    You/your friend should be careful about putting any identifying information on public forums. From re-reading the thread contents, I don't think there is any danger of that in this thread (i.e., you haven't given any details that would link back to your friend, and she won't be the only person in the country who is in this position).

    Stick around - this forum is a good place for advice and information, once you have figured out how it all works!
