Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Why don't you just apply for a court order to get him removed?
Ok. Then you need to seek a court order for possession and an injunction.
The possession order requires him to move out and an injunction stops him contacting you directly or Indirectly.
If he breaches that order preventing contact this could be contempt of court which he could be warned, fined or sent to prison.
Technically as a lodger only you could just change the locks, but you may just want a court order for the avoidance of doubt
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
Yes indeed. Get a court order, that will be the best option. Then he can't claim anything.
Does that clairfy?
1. You are and no, you it can't be challenged even though you travel
2. yes AST isn't applicable.
