Hi its Ms Nyakati i just want to ask few questions regarding my flat that's being sold.Am divorced however we married in community of property.Theres a property in both our names however recently i was served with papers by the sherrif stating it was being sold.
My ex husband couldn't keep up with the paying of levies to a point that the flat is being sold.The court date is on the 9th of March 2021.
My question is do i let the flat go or should I rescue it however If do pay the outstanding amount i want to buy him out.
What are my odds?we bought it 5 yrs back the value that time was 540 000 now its at about 710 000,the flat is in Pretoria east.
The accumulated debt for levies is about R67 500.
So will it be wise for me to pay the debt or should I let it go as i no longer reside at the address?

Answer to the Question
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
You say that you are divorced, so who got the flat? Isn't that really the question? If your ex got the flat in the divorce, then let it go because you don't own it. If you shard the flat in the divorce, then it is half yours still, and maybe there is a reason to save it?
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
