Thanks for getting in touch promptly.
On arrival to the property at the agreed time and date, access was refused until I immediately transferred money to settle household bills. The bills are in her name with one exception. I am currently transferring 50% of my monthly salary as an interim maintenance payment to cover the house running costs and paying the mortgage in full. I have repeatedly reassured in emails that I remain committed to meet our joint financial obligations.
When I attempted to gain access to the garage she had a car parked in front and instructed the owner not to remove without her permission, then called the Police. On there arrival they witnessed a peaceful scene without shouting arguing or violence.
At this point she changed her mind and the reason had now become that I was coming across as threatening. The Police informed me that there was no evidence of threatening behaviour and advised that I should leave and if I return my wife and or myself could be arrested for disturbing the peace.
She did explain to the Police that she wished to hold on to my possessions because of the potential visit from debt collectors/bailiff
Thanks again Jo,
Could you clarify if this could simple be resolved using the Police. The vehicles and other items have been stolen in my opinion. Should they be reported as such?
