As a Carer, I agreed to let my ex partner move into my home

Customer Question

As a Carer, I agreed to let my ex partner move into my home with a tenancy agreement, to support him with PTSD. Over past 2 years, he has taken over my life, controlling and dominating everything I do, whilst gradually emptying my accounts. He uses threats,
intimidation and violence regularly psychotic on drugs. I am disabled and rely on my car to get out but he steals it every day so I am housebound. I cannot get him to leave, and although Domestic Violence Unit want to help, he has rights to stay under Tenancy,
which too frightened to give notice on. I want to know any options, I cannot leave my home, but not safe. Police willing to prosecute for theft (£70,000), abuse and assault, but again, too scared. If did take court action, would I be able to get any recompense/
compensation for money stolen/ abuse, as cannot pay mortgage much longer with no savings left & no income. Am now classed as Vulnerable adult after breakdown.as result.

HiThank you for your questionMy name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.You refer to a Tenancy Agreement - who actually owns the property and what are the terms of the agreement?Clare
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I own the property, and it was done with a 'WHS pack' standard lodger tenancy agreement, with a week notice stated. The problem being living with him for that week when he would be angry and destructive, and not being able to leave myself due to health, and protecting my property & belongings. The police say only way is to charge him & get locked up, but again, when released on bail would be even more dangerous.

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
My apologies for the delayWhen was the last incidence of direct violence?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
About a year ago i tried locking him out he but smashed the door down then smashed me. Ive learnt to keep quiet, keep head down and not react so he doesnt flip out. Previous events have given me perforated ear drum, back teeth knocked out, & damaged jaw. He was boxer in the Army so packs a punch! thats why hes got away with doing what wants.
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Was that incident a year ago reported to the police?Has no one mentioned a non molestation order?
