Hi, thank you for your question. Was tge flat the former matrimonial home immediately before you separated and moved out?
Apologies for the delay. As the property is the former matrimonial home you have matrimonial home rights arising out of the marriage. This entitles you to occupy the property and you should consider registering your home rights on the title using form HR1 with the land registry - she will be informed that such a registration has been made. The home rights will remain on the title and can only be removed after divorce. During this time you should be considering financial negotiations regarding matrimonial finances, which will include the former matrimonial home. Please do let me know if you require further information regarding matrimonial finances as part of a divorce.
