Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

Does he wish to claim housing benefit?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No he is in full time work no housing benefit. My hope is that if the tenancy is in his name can I move in with the children till my divorce is finalised it is s buy to let property. Thanks christine
Expert:  Clare replied 2 months ago.

Why can you not just move there with the children anyway?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It's a bit to let property in my name so to get around that my partner would have to put the tenancy into his name
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Buy to let
Expert:  Clare replied 2 months ago.

Ah I see

And afterwards?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
We would then have my divorce finalised and either sell or transfer it over to a normal mortgage together I just want the children settled and this was the family home originally
Expert:  Clare replied 2 months ago.

In that case there is no cause for concern in term of letting the property to him.

However it is not unusual for family members to rent in such circumstances and I have never known of conditions that prevented it!

My only concern would be the issue of whether you are allowed to live there or not.

You must read the small print very carefully especially if your ex is likely to be reporting you if you are not.

Please ask if you need further details

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
My ex is living in another buy to let property we own, I just wanted to know the legalities if the tenancy is solely in my partners name could the mortgage lender dis allow me from moving in I would not be on the tenancy so is it not up to my partner what he does in that tenancy I'm just trying to cover all angles as it could leave me homeless
