we are unable to sell the house we both own as I have 3 children under the age of 16yrs 2 of which resides with my ex and 1 child with me.

she refuses my 13 year old son access at all as he doesn''t get on with her current boyfriend who now lives at our home

As I still own half the house can i charge her boyfriend rent even though i have been told by her that i am not allowed to go near the house either except when i''m picking up our children:unsure: .

Can she afford the mortgage on her own? Presumably you also have your own housing costs to meet. It is usual for the person who has remained in the house to meet the mortgage payments on their own (where they can afford to do so) as they are "enjoying" the other party''s share of the house.

In theory you could try to charge him rent, are you absolutely sure that he now lives in that house permanently, has no other house, and contributes financially to the household?
