Regardless whose name is on the deeds someone who is married has the right to live in the matrimonial home. In Scotland your husband''s occupation rights end either when you divorce or
if he leaves the family home and does not return for two years or more.
What about transferring the property deeds? IF he is still on the property deeds he will still be a joint owner even though you are paying the mortgage. YOu can usually only divorce when the finances have been settled and arrangements for children under 16 are in place.
