I am in a relationship with a man whose wife left him 3 years ago and emigrated to the Caribbean. He is currently going through the divorce process. I moved in with my partner one year ago and have never been against his ex entering the home when she is in the country - to visit her children etc My problem is that she will turn up without warning, enter the house without letting anyone know- in one instance I got up to use the bathroom to find her standing on the landing! In August she is returning to this country to visit her kids and wants to stay in the house whilst my partner and I have a weekend away - I am uncomfortable with this as she will have access to the bedroom I use with all my belongings etc. I wondered where we stand legally to provide some boundaries (lock on the room etc). Her name is currently on the mortgage and the house is on the market for sale. Any advice please!
Any advice would be appreciated
Your legal rights could be argued from a number of angles, its really down to you partner, he and his wife own the house and they have children, its definitely something to sort out once the house is sold, you don`t want to be in the same situation in your next home, talk to your partner and make sure he knows how you feel.
