Divorce lawyers and relationship counsellors are expecting to see a significant surge in relationship breakdown this week.
The first working Monday after the Christmas break has even been dubbed ‘divorce day’ due to the number of couples that make the decision to separate or enquire about divorce on that day.
The Christmas period is notoriously difficult for struggling couples as they’re forced to spend significant time together.
It can also be a time of substantial financial pressure, which plays a role in the breakdown of many relationships.
If you’ve recently taken the difficult decision to separate, it’s likely that you’re keen to resolve the relationship swiftly. Unfortunately, for many, joint ownership of a property is an issue that keeps them tied together for considerably longer than they’d like.
Danny Luke, Quick Move Now’s managing director, commented:
It’s a sad reality that 42% of marriages now end in divorce and there’s a significant surge in relationship breakdown that occurs over the Christmas period. Divorce lawyers report a 27% increase in the number of people seeking advice in January, compared to an average month.
Relationship breakdown is a sad but normal part of life. It’s important to do what you can to minimise the challenges surrounding the dissolution of a relationship for everyone’s sake.
Coordinating the sale of a property can be a stressful and time-consuming process. Coordinating viewings, negotiating with estate agents and waiting an average 10-12 weeks for the sale to go through can all add significant pressure to an already tense situation.
Selling your property to a genuine cash home buyer like Quick Move Now can ease that stress. We could have the sale completed and money in your bank accounts within 7 days; leaving you free to move on and start your new life.
