Ex belongings was created by fon
Hi,

Me and Ex are living separately for more than 2 years. We have already filed for the divorce. Before [url=Resources/Library/Cohabitation-and-Separation_s33_m1852.html ]separation[/url], we're living in a rented accommodation. I'm still living there but she has moved out 2 yrs ago. She still has her belongings in the property which I asked her to take away several times but she didn't yet.

Is there any way I can make her take her things away so that I can empty the property and move away? I don't want to throw away her stuff just because we got separated and there is a bad air between the two.

Welcome to Wikivorce.

You could have removal of belongings written into an order re finances. Even if there is nothing to split, you should get a legally binding order to sever all ties.

Alternatively you could write a formal letter telling her that you are proposing to move and giving a deadline by when the stuff is to be removed or it will be disposed of.

Or both depending on the time frame for moving.

Thank you Hadenoughnow for your response.

I was thinking on the same lines but the trouble is she won't honour any letters or requests. She would pay attention only to Court requests and I've read that there is no such regulation to ask her to move her stuff legally.

Is there a mutual friend you could leave them with?

What sort of stuff are you talking about?

If you can be sure she has received notification and have evidence of it - signed for letter, email read receipt, even a read fb message or WhatsApp message, you would be perfectly within your rights to dispose of the stuff if she does not meet the deadline for removal.
