yes

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 2 years ago.
Firstly she is entitled to move back into the house if it is in joint names. You would be entitled to sell the house on the basis that you have split up and there are no children. If she refuses to agree to the sale then you would have to take the matter to court I am afraid for an order to sell the property. This is pretty straight forward. Happy to discuss. Please remember to rate positive .
