I co-own a small village property in France along with 2 others, one of who is coming to the end of a UK bankruptcy term. His ownership % amounts to about £5k. The UK Official receiver has stated that the OR will retain an interest in his share until the £5k is paid. I have read on a few other advice pages that a lien cannot be placed on a jointly owned property in France, is this correct? Would anyone know how much it would actually cost the OR to place a lien in France? Just trying to ascertain the legality of this situation and/or whether it might be possible for the other owners to make a counter-offer to the OR for consideration?
