Time restraints on sale of a house in consent order

I am currently coming to an agreement with my ex regarding the sale of the marital home. I am agreeing to a far lower split of the equity in the house in exchange for it being sold now and my name being released from the mortgage. My question is, what stops my ex delaying the sale and dragging the process out? She requires the equity to move straight in to another house she buys and so will have a new chain and property to deal with. She could easily drag the process out meaning I have not only agreed to a lower percentage but im also lefty on the mortgage for years to come. Can a consent order have a time limit on the house sale before it is void? What would happen after that point?
