If your family law dispute is going to court, you can protect your interest in the family home through a certificate of pending litigation (CPL) which is registered against the title to the property. A CPL lets a potential buyer know that ownership of the home may change as a result of the litigation, which usually prevents the sale of the house.

But what if you’re not going to court, either because you plan to settle with your spouse another way, or because you haven’t even made a final decision yet whether to separate or divorce? The law provides protection in these situations as well through the Land (Spouse Protection) Act, which allows a spouse whose name is not on title to put a charge on the house that operates in the same way a CPL does.
