I previously posted about how to obtain a property valuation for a divore settlement and receive some great advice. I have now obtain an Expertise Valuation report and am moving to the next phase.
One thing that I have not yet considered, but need to, is the legal costs of selling. Not that I will sell, but I need to know how to moderate the valuation on the assumption that if I did sell, the costs would be split.
Also, what are the costs involved in a notaire doing what is required to make me the sole owner in the event I give my wife cash for her half? Is it a set cost, hourly rate (if so, how much) or a percentage of value?
Lastly, are there any hidden costs I need to factor in, or costs that are not liable at the time of the change but I need to consider should I eventually sell?
Many questions I know, but its a bit like I don't know what I don't know.
