Our nearest neighbour (english) has money problems. He's returned to the UK and the huissiers have changed the lock on the house here and today held a sale of the remaining contents.
Does this necessarily lead to a lien on the house itself?

It depends. If he has a mortgage, I'd guess the bank will foreclose/have foreclosed. Changing the locks usually gives the clue that that's the case. He should have been informed of proceedings (in English) at all stages.

Thanks Mad. He must have known what was going on but did nothing.
My other neighbour, who's french, thinks it's "revanche" on his wife (soon to be ex.)
It's sad, but seems to happen quite often here where they're more merciless with bankrupts than in the UK.

Gosh, there must be a lot of tongues wagging in the area!

I got dragged into a similar divorce situation, entirely unsuspectingly. Worse still, from my point of view, the 'weapon' was a dog, not a house. X(
