Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How long have they actually lived together and are there any children involved?
Why did your son leave the house?
how much is the property worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?

They have been together for 4 years, there are no children. My son left out of respect for her, but then her Mother emptied all his belongings out and is tryin g to take both the properties. The house is now empty can he move back in as he is paying for it. I must add that I gave harry 6000 as a deposit for his flat which is now rented out, then when his father died he used 47000 of his inheritance money to pay the deposit on the house. The flat is worth about 95000 and the house u=is worth about 150000 I believe the only equity is the depositaa

HI
Where has his ex moved to?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
In with her Mither I believe, if not she may move her mother in with her which worries us so we want to know if he can move it in while its still empty and his rights.

Hi
Your son is entitled to return to the property whenever he wishes - as is his wife.
Only if there is an incidence of physical violence is it likely that an Order excluding either of them will be made
In terms of the eventual financial settlement the short length of the relationship and your son's financial contribution will make his ex's claim very small.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details

Hi
Your son can return any time he wishes - and he can change the locks BUT his wife is entitled to a key.
For the avoidance of doubt - your son is entitled to return whenever he wishes and remain there - but his ex is also entitled to return if she wishes
