Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Who owns the property?
Your daughter has Matrimonial Home Rights on the property and can return there whenever she wishes.
Indeed if she applied to the court she would most probably be able to obtain an Order allowing her to live there and forcing her ex to leave.
The difficulty arises because she is not also a joint owner of the property.
If she were then she could simply break in without any come back.
As she is not a joint owner it is a grey area.
As I said she has the right to return there and accordingly if any damage caused by the break in was immediately repaired it is unlikely that the Police would take any action
If you would rather not take that approach then your daughter needs to make an application to the court for the right to return to the property using the form here
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
You are welcome - I hope all goes well
