I am separated from my wife. She has JUST started UK divorce proceedings. We do not live together, I live in a buy to let home she owns. I moved in here in May 2013. I pay her £800 a month rent and have done so every month without fail. There is NO rental agreement She is now turning nasty and wants to evict me and says she will issue paperwork soon and also now wants the lettings agents to start showing the house to people If evicted I have nowhere for my 2 children to visit me What are my rights please??
Married in 2004, lived together since 2001. 2 kids. she has just filed for divorce. She lives in a house SHE owns, I live in a house SHE owns (both b4 we met she bought) and OUR home we rent out as we cant affor to live there.
my issue is not what I can keep but can she simply evict me btw. BUT here are the answers, thanks
HER HOUSES IN HER NAME
Minnidale. mortgage 215k, value 500k (I live in)
Gibbon Mortgage 415k value 775k(she lives in with kids)
Peterborough. Mortgage 100k value k150 (rented out)
Nutfield mortgage 1m value 1.6m
We get rent net from the above of £5400, after expenses I send her £5200. This covers ALL 3 mortgages, just.
she just issued me with the papers a few days ago and is asking for everything basically.
could you tell me, would I apply to the court to get it stopped if she issues a notice to leave etc...?
Can she legally throw me out whilst the divorce is not started by her?
apologies for so many questions
your comment "If she does start proceedings to evict you then you can defend the on the basis that there is no tenancy and you simply have a right of occupation"
will this stand up in court ? as this was my main question, can she evict me?
