Hi, it appears my follow up questions had gone to another accoumt.
Please could you tell me if I have any protection from the law against his blackmail and threats and can I stop him from coming to my house or my family's houses and causing trouble. I cannot afford a solicitor, should I or can I involve the police? thank you
He is working. The question of assets is no he doesn't but he would argue that he does. To cut a long story very short.....3 years ago he was in danger of losing his house due to a lengthy and complicated court battle with his his ex business partner.I brought the house at market value to stop him losing it as part of that battle. He eventually lost the court case and owed his ex business partner £35k. I remortgaged my own house to lend him the money to pay the partner. I did this thinking that my money was safe as the house, "his" house was now mine and if anything went wrong I could sell it to get my money back.
Well something did go wrong, I became very ill, he left me, moved into the house and is still there, paying as and when it suits him. There is no legal agreement, I was simply too ill to be able to do anything about it at the time. I now desperately need my money back, I am unable to work at the moment and I need my name off the mortgage. I have given him two options 1) to prove to me that he can raise a mortgage to include the debt to me or 2) move out and let me sell it on the open market. His response is to blackmail and threaten me. Does the fact that whether he is working or have assets make a difference to whether someone can get away with threatening you?
