Divorce + Property

Any real estate transaction can be charged with high emotions. Add to that the component of a divorce and you find yourself on a whole new level of stress.

As a Real Estate Agent with a background in Family & Divorce Mediation, I understand that this will be a complex agreement.

While selling a home is usually by choice and the homeowners have the same motivation, selling a property due to a divorce may involve two parties who do not see eye to eye, whose motivations often differ, where conflict can be high, and decisions are being made that are often not by choice, making “Divorce Real Estate” a completely different picture than any other type of real estate transaction.

A home is likely the biggest asset in the divorce and can be emotionally driven.

Did you know?

Transfer duty does not apply if a property is awarded to a spouse in terms of a divorce order. The exemption applies to all marital regimes and to civil unions. However, if the property is not awarded to a spouse in terms of a divorce order and the parties reach an agreement outside of the formal divorce proceedings, the spouse who acquires the property will be liable for transfer duty.

A Real Estate Agent who does not understand the dynamics and sensitivities going on in a divorce can escalate and even create conflict. If you are already engaged in litigation with lawyers, it is likely that your property has also become ammunition in a win/lose battle instead of being managed as your most valuable asset for a win/win outcome.

As a Real Estate Agent practicing Divorce Mediation I am committed to protecting homeowners of divorce with the knowledge, skills and tools to successfully support the process of selling their property towards a successful outcome for both parties and I will assist to mediate any differences, reassure fears and clarify unmet needs at no extra costs to the parties, allowing for a mindful transition and transfer process.

If you need to sell your home due to Divorce, contact me to assist you with both the emotional and practical aspect, because your property matters.

Did you know?

How property is divided in a divorce depends on the couple’s type of marital contract.
However, a divorce agreement can override the terms of a couple’s marital contract if both parties agree on how they want to divide their property, it therefore needn’t be on the basis of their marital contract.
Mediation is best way to reach such an agreement.
