McDonnell’s distorted and dangerous version of Right to Buy9:01 AM, 5th September 2019

I am trying to get advice about selling a property when there is a restriction by an ex partner.
Scenario is this; I own a home, bought in my sole name and mortgage has always been in my sole name. An ex partner lived there for a few years and took me to Tribunal in 2013 to register a restriction. She obtained the restriction and has since threatened to force a sale.
I tried to be reasonable to offer her a fair settlement to get the restriction removed.
She seems to think she can use this as a blackmailing tool to get me to pay up more than is reasonable.
How can I sell the house if she is being unreasonable?
She has not paid into the property in ten years and seems to think she has an ongoing percentage stake in the property. So if I spent on major renovations she is demanding gains in all of my recent investment.
Just want to be able to know that I can sell and move on without lots of further unnecessary legal costs.
