By Punam Denley of Blanchards Law.

If, the matrimonial home is held in your sole name then you should be advised that to protect themselves, your spouse may enter a Homes Right Notice which should mean that, effectively, the house cannot be sold without the permission of your spouse.  If the matrimonial home is held in your spouse’s name, you would be advised to instruct us to place a Homes Right Notice on the matrimonial home to protect your interests and to avoid a sale without your permission or notification.


Please do call us if you think that you may be in need of such protection.
