Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:-Are you in England or Wales?-Do you have any children together, if so their ages and proposed arrangements?-Who is now living in the property?
-Are you still married to him?
Thank you for your response and apologies for the delay in writing back.
As you are married and have not divorced you have matrimonial home rights to the property. This means that even though the tenancy is in his sole name you have a right to occupy the property until divorce and he can only exclude you if there is a court order preventing you from returning. You are not considered a "guest" if you return given that it is the former matrimonial home and you remain married to him and it does not need to be specified in the tenancy.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
No worries - as you are married you do not really need to be included as a permitted occupier because under statute you are considered a permitted occupier by virtue of matrimonial home rights until divorce or if your husband obtains a court order to exclude you from the property.
If the landlord attempts to remove you from the property you will need to inform him that you have matrimonial home rights by virtue of the marriage and he should seek legal advice about it.
