Thank you for your question.

You have occupancy rights in the house even if the tenancy isn't in your name. You could apply to the court for a transfer of the tenancy. At the moment however if you don't want to move out then she can't make you unless she says that you have been violent towards her or similar.

Please let me know if you have any specific questions I can help you with and I will be happy to help.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
