Hi
The amount he is paying is about right for now.
However since he remains a joint owner of the property he can indeed return at any time and your daughter cannot exclude him unless he is physically violent.
However he cannot dictate who does or does not come to the property
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
