Thanks for your question. Unless there has been ay violent incidents which would justify you applying to the court for an exclusion order, you can't make your husband leave, in the same way that he can't make you leave. In that event, and if you can't reach agreement, you would either have to ask a court to order the sale of the house, or alternatively, as part of a divorce action you could ask the court to order the transfer of the house to you in return for you taking on the mortgage and buying your husband out. Neither of these suggestions may work in your specific circumstances but they are the only options in the absence of agreement. I hope that helps.

It would not disadvantage you as regards ***** ***** should not disadvantage you as regards ***** ***** you out. He either buys you out or you apply to the court for a division and sale order.
As regards ***** ***** the mortgage, you have to pay it if he doesn't and claim what you've paid as regards ***** ***** from the date of separation from his ultimate share of matrimonial property. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time,
There is no time period for a buy out or a sale. You can live in the same house and still live separate lives and be considered separated. When you stop living "at bed and board" you can be separated but still living under the same roof. Any property purchased after a separation is not termed matrimonial property and he would have no claim to it. I hope that helps. Please a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
Living at bed and board means you eat and sleep together. That would not indicate separation but if you live in separate rooms and live separate lives then you can be deemed to be separated even though you are staying under the same roof. You can apply for a sale of the property at any time. An application to transfer the house to you would have be done as part of a divorce action and the timing of that would depend on whether you were divorcing him on the ground of unreasonable behaviour, in which case you could raise it immediately, or divorce on the basis of two year's separation in which case you would have to be separated for at least two years.
