Hi, thank you for your question. Who is funding the outgoings towards the properties?
Who pays for the mortgage and household outgoings on that property? This is relevant to answer your question.
Thanks for confirming. The legal position on this situation is that as you are both contributing to both the mortgages and are not benefiting from the use of the property you would be entitled to charge occupational rent, which is a reasonable market rate compared to the local area rental figures.
The exact details of the payments she is receiving from them for the use of the property will need to be disclosed as it is not clear whether this includes contributions towards rent, groceries and other outgoings which she may purchase and they contribute towards.
Given that you have now separated you may want to also look into cutting your ties with each other, in that you should think about having each of the properties transferring to each of your sole names.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
