Hi all tricky one this, me and my ex are cohabiting and are [url=Resources/Library/Cohabitation-and-Separation_s33_m1852.html ]not married[/url] have one son of 4, we are in the process of selling g the house and have agreed with solicitors what financially is going to happen with the equity off the sale of the home, I am the owner on paper of the property she provided a deposit for the home I payed the mortgage so she has her base covered by contacting land registry,the problem is after the work done on the land registry she keeps mentioning to kick me out if she wanted to, now I do not instigate any ill feeling as I just want to sell and move on but I am just worried her game playing is trying to make me homeless as being in an IVA tenancies are very reluctant to offer me anything, what can I do to prevent her if she wanted to kick me out for no reason.
She can't kick you out in a normal way because you are the owner but as a lot of women do she could fake a domestic violence allegation and state that she along with the child is not safe with you in the property and so apply for an \"occupation order\" against you which would mean you would be excluded from the property. She doesn't need any evidence to get this and the court will likely be faced with some pretty good acting on her part and side with her and the child against you.
Your best defense against this is to keep a diary of each time she has threatened to have you kicked out and if possible record her making these threats without her knowing so get an app for your phone that you can just quietly switch to record when you think she's going to start threatening you.
For her to be making these threats against you she must be thinking ahead as to how she would do this.
If you have evidence that she has been threatening and planning how to get you out of the house it may help you frustrate it but it won't be enough to get her kicked out.
If she was to go to the length of self-harming in some even very mild way and called the police because of the child you will likely be the one being arrested and having to leave your house because the court would just say this is a toxic environment for the child to be in.
