Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I'm reviewing your question and will revert back to you shortly.
The police can attend a property if there is a dispute over belongings in the breakdown of the relationship in order to prevent a breach of the peace.
They cant force you to hand over belongings but they can suggest that it might be a good idea, of course.
The same should apply to you though, if you have belongings that are yours that he is not returning.
But as I said, you can't be forced to hand items over as the police will not determine a dispute about ownership, this is a matter for the civil courts.
Can I clarify anything?
I'm sorry I don't understand the response - you have typed "cfhh" and nothing else?
My advice would be to pursue this via a solicitor's letter, suggesting that you reach agreement over the division of property rather than have to pursue it through the courts, which could become costly.
You can find a local solicitor here:
I hope this assists?
Can I assist you further with your question?
