Been to the wine bar tonight and got involved in conversation with friend I advised he see solicitor ASAP
Situation he divorced but finances not dealt with only because the ex wife has refused to deal with it. This week she informed him she is moving back into FMH
because her lease is up, he has a lodger so no spare rooms.
It's been over two years since he has seen her the house is in joint names. Can she do this and can he do anything to stop her. Where she is going to sleep is anyone's guess.
My thoughts are she can because it's still jointly owned. This must be nightmare scenario for anyone.
He wanted them to sort out a settlement but she has been obstructive there is a rental property that she wants to move into and tenants are looking but she wants everything last minute so she is saying if they are not out she is moving into
I \"think\" the agreement he wants is that a plan is drawn up before her having the rental property or else she will move in and do nothing and force him to take court proceedings.
Obviously I am getting stuff third hand and only one side of a story. But it appears that she is very obstructive. The Fmh is mortgaged the rental is not which probably says a lot about her intentions.
He has been living off rental but as tenants departure is imminent he took in a lodger. I believe his solicitor agreed or suggested this option rather than go for maintenance order as she earns he doesn't.
