I’ve been living in the marital residence since our separation began. We are still co-owners of the house. Divorce was final almost a year ago. The separation agreement calls for the house to be listed for sale by Spring 2012. Although I’m hoping for a conflict-free transaction, I would like to get a handle on my rights, obligations, and an understanding of common practice in this situation.
Some things which have some up already (which are NOT covered in any way in the separation agreement):
- Does my ex get to have a choice in the listing agent?
- Am I obligated to give my ex (co-owner) access to the property during the sale process?
- Can I set the listing price and sale price, or do I need to reach a consensus with my ex?
