Hi Janet
If your ex-partner was never a joint owner of the house, the charge for their debt should never have been on your house.
If they were and remain joint owners, then the charge remains on the house to the debt is paid or the house is sold.
If you have bought out their share of the house, then the charge should have been dealt with by the solicitor who dealt with the sale. If they haven’t, you should raise this with them.
