Customer Question

I currently live with my girlfriend in my house which I solely in my name. She has her own property which she currently rents out. The tenancy is not due to expire until August 2016. We split up 2 months ago but she still hasn't moved out the house. Her 17 old son and 19 year old daughter live in the house too. Do I have any rights to get her to move out?

Hi, thank you for your question.
As you were cohabiting and the property is in your sole name she does not have automatic rights and you can "evict" her and her children by giving them reasonable notice. I would suggest that this notice is provided to her in writing. You do not need to go to court to do this.
