Hi, thanks for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:

-what is her relation to you?

-does she have a tenancy agreement, if so what is the length and when does it expire?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Tina Sorrell was my partner and has lived in my home for 8 years.
I pay the mortgage and she does not have a tenancy agreement.

Are you married and do you have children together, if so how old and what are the proposed arrangements for them?

Is her name on thr title of the property ?

No we are not married and do not have children together.
no her name is ***** ***** the title of the property
Expert:  Harris replied 6 months ago.

Thank you for confirming and apologies as this response appeared to have been archived.

Given that you are not married, have no children together and her name is ***** ***** the title of the property she no longer has a right to occupy the property and therefore you can request that she leaves by giving her reasonable written notice to vacate. If she does not leave by the date you request then she will be trespassing and the police can assist to remove her given that she no longer has rights to live in the property.

She has paid for improvements on my home that have ultimately improved the value of my house i.e. conservatory, kitchen and bathroom. If this went to court would I be expected to pay her back some / all of her outlay.
Expert:  Harris replied 6 months ago.

In order to be successful she will need to show that there was a formal agreement, arrangement or intention that she would be compensated for her contribution to the property.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
OK that is extremely helpful and I am grateful for your help.
As I never received a phone call can I assume the second payment taken from my account will be reimbursed.
Obviously the first payment I am fine with as you have been very helpful.
Expert:  Harris replied 6 months ago.

I will refer it to customer services as I was not notified that there was a phone call request.

Thank you
