Thank you, ***** ***** bit more information required:
-What type of tenancy agreement is it?
-Does your spouse remain living in the property?
Thank you. Firstly, as your wife is a joint tenant on the tenancy, you cannot change the locks or remove her belongings as she has a legal right to live in the property unless evicted or a court order excludes her from the property. You could potentially give notice to quit yourself, thereby ending the tenancy and the landlady can consider issuing a new tenancy in your sole name. If it is transferred into your sole name your wife will have a right to occupy the property until decree absolute.
Otherwise, you could consider an application to court in relation to transfer of tenancy using form D50B and a £155 court fee to your local family court.
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 answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
