Doesn't seem the kids would be effected by it. Is there any equalization payment issue outstanding ? Are you seeking exclusive possession of the home? Why are you opposing the sale? See case below.

Quote:
Although there is clear jurisdiction under the Partition Act to order the sale of the parties' matrimonial home I do not wish to be taken to have endorsed the wholesale issuance of these orders. In my view, an order directing the sale of a matrimonial home before trial should only be made in cases where, in all of the circumstances, such an order is appropriate. Orders for the sale of a matrimonial home made before the resolution of Family Law Act issues (particularly the determination of the equalization payment),
should not be made as a matter of course. See Binkley v. Binkley (1988), 14 R.F.L. (3d) 336 (Ont. C.A.). In addition, spousal rights of possession (s. 19) and any order for interim exclusive possession should be
taken into account.

Are you trying to offer less than market price?

If so, and she refuses, then you have no legal remedy. Offer her market price or sell the house.

Interesting case law Trinton. In my case the sale of the marital home was forced before trial. I could not buy out my ex's share as I had to come up with 100% of the value of the home including my share! Then this money was to be held in trust as ex said I was not entitled to any money after a long term marriage. I did come up with the $ via a private broker but the interest rate was astronomical so I said no.
End result was that the kids and I were homeless for a period of time living out of my vehicle! None of the kids will forgive him for this ( I didn't tell them he did this, they figured it out).

Now that trial is upon us, it turns out he owed me the home paid for and more, yet I was forced to sell it and the kids made homeless!
Lawyer told me I can't get the house back but we are asking for real estate fees back.

A case like mine is a prime example why the house shouldn't be forced to be sold until trial or a settlement agreement has been reached!

If you owned the house yourself, then the value of the house would be the value at the separation date.

In this case, however, you both own the house, so you both get to gain from the increase in value.

Different situations. I'm assuming that yours is the latter, which means that it is reasonable for her to ask for the current market rate.

Janus is correct. Exact same thing happened to me.

I paid her out as quickly as I could (half the value - minus half the debt). Glad I did. Real estate went up massively since then. Recovered all my money paid out.

GTA house pricing went up 6 % one month. Tax free. Good luck

?????????????????
You only had to pay 1/2 the debit and 1/2 the equity????????


What the ...., is going on in family law? I was told I had to pay for 100% of both the debt and equity! I could easily have come up with that .
In my case I had to come up with it all and the money would be held in trust .
Can't believe there are two sets of laws even in family court.
You must be mistaken.

I think you are talking about the same thing... the ex was responsible for half the debt on the house and he really only had to pay her half the equity... remortgaging would take care of the debt and payout. There are not two sets of rules... it's simple math. That being said, you are both entitled to fair market value so offer fair market value in a proper offer to settle.

House was worth $200k
Mortgage is $100k

Ex gets $100k equity
OP gets $100k equity

They are each responsible for $50k of the debt, thus the payout to the ex is only $50k not $100k so half the equity and half the debt.

If you are saying you have to come up with all of it are you saying your ex wants to full $100k equity on the house rather than just their 50% share?
