Separation and bankruptcy
August 4th, 2011 by Questions
I am confused about a friend situation regarding her recent bankruptcy. She wasn’t married (common law) and when diagnosed with cancer she filled for bankruptcy and pretty much lost everything and got separated.
Now her ex wants to sell the house that he kept (but probably didn’t pay the morgage of) without filling any papers regarding any kind of transfer of the property to him only.
Technicaly , her name is still on the house so can he sell the house without her permission ? I she entitled to half the equity ? And if he doesn’t sell the house does he has to buy her half of the house or can he stay in the house pro bono ?
I am completly lost because I thought bankruptcy meant losing your house to the bank !
Thank you for your answer because I just can’t find an answer anywhere !
