The end of any relationship is a stressful and harrowing time for all. When shared property and high-value assets are involved, the situation can be even worse. The best practice in such a situation is obviously to deal with everything as quickly as possible. The longer the issues go on without being resolved, the more time it will take to get over the split and return to some sort of new normality. Below we have put together a few tips to help you resolve these matters quickly and effectively.
Set up a separation agreement
Many relationships break down due to lack of communication, and this in itself can make the separation process even worse. One way to ensure you both are on the same page and understand exactly what is happening is to setup a separation agreement. With the help of a solicitor, you can list exactly what is going to happen with money, property and even responsibilities for any children. Examples of usual requests include an agreement not to annoy or disturb a former partner, to provide financial maintenance for a partner as long as they are not living with another partner and who the children should live and have contact with. Although tough to do at the time, agreements such as this can alleviate any potential problems in the long run, and are highly recommended.
Find faster ways of selling property
Traditional routes of selling property are tediously long and drawn out. When you are trying to start a new life for yourself away from a former partner, this is the last thing you want. Luckily there are many companies which can sell your house quickly, sometimes for cash within a week. This could shave many torturous months off the process, giving you both the chance to start afresh with your new lives.
