Stbx has to be out of the house by the end of month he is now refusing to take his furniture which he had before the marriage saying that I am breaking the law by telling him the have to be removed from the property with him

Am I in my rights to give him official notice to remove his tens by this date? I have given him storage company details also if he does not have the room

I am in the process of arranging my own furniture

If property is jointly owned then I think he is within his rights to store furniture until everything sorted legally. I would suggest you just store it somewhere if possible.

Have the finances etc been sorted and the house is now yours? If yes then I would think you could give him notice. If not sorted then nothing you can do yet.

I think not knowing your situation too well, however you have to communicate a date by which he has to move it by, tell him if he has not moved it by that date you will have it removed after that date. Give it to him in writing and keep a copy yourself.

From your other posts it seems that the finances haven''t been sorted.

Is the home your living in jointly owned? Did the court order say he and his furniture had to be gone by end of month or just in best interest of child he leaves?

You could see if a letter to solicitor works but if he still jointly owns the house and the consent/court order for finances hasn''t been finalized he is probably still entitled to leave his furniture in the property.
