The problem

A common occurrence in these types of cases is that during the divorce one party was to take control of the overseas property with the other individual waiving their rights to the property. However, if the correct processes are not undertaken in the country where the property is located then it is likely both parties will still be named on the mortgage. Both parties, therefore, are joint and severally liable for the debt.
