We have been living together 3 years 2 months (separated 18 months of that)
We have no kids.
It was originally in my husbands name. He is 36 I am 34.
As I stated our housing officer said we can't apply for relationship breakdown until we have been living together 3 years. Which was Sept 2014. When we applied in October 2014 ( I had to wait until Oct as I was saving to file for divorce, which is the proof they needed to be able to apply for relationship breakdown ) they then said the procedure had in Sept 2014 changed. I think this is very unfair.
I pay full rent and council tax and my name is ***** ***** the tenancy. I spent all my time making it a home and now I have to give it up because of my husbands infidelity. Surely I have more rights than this?
He's had the tenancy 10 years.
He's registered severely sighted and has type one diabetes.
He receives Disability Living Allowance every two weeks.
I work full time and on a good salary but dye to my marriage breaking down I didn't deal with it very well and git into debt. I have arrangements to my creditors to clear the debt ASAP.
I think one of us should be rehoused. I would love to stay where I am as it's been my home and where I feel safe but if I have to move then I will.
What are the chances of one of us being rehoused?
Am I wasting my time fighting for this tenancy?
Thank you so much for your help Clare.
