If you have been left the right to live in the house for life, even if the will doesn’t say that you have the right to stay in it alone, it is implied that you would not have to have the whole of the family and all their friends and children and the whole menagerie living with you. You are in exactly the same situation that a private tenant would be who is entitled to quiet enjoyment (peaceful occupation) from their landlord. In this situation, the landlord is the son.
I suggest that you get a solicitor to write to the son telling him that whilst he may have the write to visit the house from time to time, he is not entitled to live in it and hence he needs to make other arrangements. If he then won’t make other arrangements, then you need a court order to get him out.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Please rate the service positive.
The thread remains open for further exchanges.
I just called as requested but the telephone number you have given appears to be incorrect because the person who answered the phone didn’t know anything about this.
If you could please let me have your contact details again, I can call you back either in the next 10 minutes or so or any time tomorrow if you let me know when it is convenient. Best wishes.
