Release equity for divorce or separation

release equity divorce or separation

Release equity - divorce or separation? Chances are if you're coming to terms with the prospect of a separation or divorce three things will be uppermost in your mind. Money matters, a timely resolution and minimising the emotional strain on all concerned. You have to make your cash go further. And to make matters worse it's also possible that neither party is able to remain in the family home.

For the vast majority of people going through divorce or separation, property issues are one of the main stumbling blocks that hold things up or de-rail well intended plans. This is because when it comes to raising cash for divorce or separation property is king.

Depending on your circumstances and the property concerned, selling outright to give both parties a new start can be the most sound option - regardless of how you sell. But you can release equity for divorce or separation in other ways too.

If you need to release equity for divorce or separation you can sell your house privately or through an estate agent. People do. After all, you're far more likely to get the highest possible price for your home. But it is a riskier enterprise. To cap it call, the sale may take quite a few months to go through.

You can encourage a quicker sale by pricing your home competitively relative to similar properties in your area. And do take account of local market conditions. If it looks as though properties are taking a long time to sell it probably means prices don't properly reflect current market conditions. Prices are too high for what the current market will bear. It's a slower way to release equity for divorce or separation but it suits some people.
