Do they own the house?
Do you have an AST?
Then the situation depends on whether or not she has a right to rent the property.
If she doesn't then he could try to evict you. Probably you would avoid eviction for the term of the AST if you could show that you were paying rent without incident though.
If she did have a right at one point and it has expired then the court is not going to evict you.
She may well end up paying costs if she has done this without authority.
Your rights depend on her right to rent. It is not going to be possible to ascertain that.
If you want to leave then a court probably would uphold your decision in the circumstances.
Give that the husband has attended and changed the locks that would tend to suggest you are being misled.
Just don't make a statement if the police attend. Don't get involved in her stupid childish domestic squabbles.
It isn't break in and entering anyway and that isn't an offence in the UK per se.
She is just trying to use the police to get revenge - like, in truth, most accusers.
Well, as I said, they depend on her rights to rent.
But he isn't going to be able to evict you that quickly even if it is all a hoax on her part.
No, don't bother. Leave her to it.
Not your problem.
Well, it is not that simple.
The letter you signed when he was there is a non issue. Whatever you signed doesn't change your entitlement to stay if indeed she did have a right to grant this tenancy.
Yes, but it depends what has happened to ownership of the property now.
You will never know.
If you are periodic then the actual owner could give notice but they can't just turn up and evict you.
Just refuse a statement when the police attend. Don't be dragged into her relationship nonsense.
All the best.
