Do you have a restriction on the property? If so, you will have to get this removed before a sale.

As Kallis mentions, there might be a restriction on the property -- which basically means that the IP will be informed of the sale and will have to work with the solicitors to work around this. Usually the solicitors will undertake to send the equity due to creditors direct to the IP. This should be your wifes half of the proceeds after all secured lending and selling fees etc. have been dealt with.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
