Can my ex partner who remains to reside in a property which we jointly own (tenants in common) move his new partner into the house without consultation and agreement from me?

We are trying to come to a financial agreement through a solicitor for him to remove me from the deeds and mortgage however this is still ongoing.

Hi

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
House is valued at 95, 25 outstanding. He offered 6.... So still in negotiation. He remained in the house and kept all the furnishings.

Hi
Your ex is entitled to invite whoever he wishes into the house whilst you are not there.
If you return to the property then whenever he is not there you can insist that his partner leaves
This is clearly not a practical solution - it may be worth instead simply making an immediate application to the court for the sale of the property and the division of the equity between you
