I would approach them with an OFFER to sell up to fund a F&F, taking the stance that if creditors do not accept the offer you will not sell the house and, even if accepted the offer will have to be conditional on the house sale going through. No acceptance, no sale.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

I agree - proposed a variation based on settlement from sales proceeds otherwise you could lose the house and be back to square one with your debts, potentially facing Bankruptcy.
