Hi, thank you for your message. If you are afraid to be assaulted you should contact the police with evidence and they will investigate the matter for your. You will be asked to provide them a statement and they will notify you if they arrest/charge him. If the matter is brought to court the judge may award a restraining order against him preventing him to contact you. A restraining order is made by the criminal court to prevent a person from contacting or pursuing a course of conduct with another person. The order is designed to protect the person named from crime against an individual and they can be made on conviction or acquittal of any criminal offence. Any person convicted or acquitted (found innocent or not proven) of a criminal offence can be made subject of a restraining order. You can find your local police here: https://www.police.uk/contact/
I hope this helps if you can please accept my answer, there will be a box to do so and give me a five star rating for answering your question top right corner and just answer will credit me for helping you.
Good morning. I do not see why he is entitled to have keys. On what basis is he asserting that he can have a key? He doesnt live there, has no right to live there, so should not have keys!
Good morning, I see that you have left a negative rating, but have not responded to my question, I am trying to assist, but I do need you to engage so i can help you.
Okay, there seems to be some confusion, I sent a request for further information only yesterday. I am an Irish solicitor. Previous to that, someone else sought to answer your question, but was from the UK.
So I stepped in to try and help, asked for further information and then got a negative rating. If you do not wish to proceed, perhaps you can ask Just Answer for your money back and for your rating to be removed? If you think I may be able to help you, I am happy to try. I am solicitor based in Dublin with over 12 years of experience.
It looks like a horrible situation.
You are living in the Family Home with your mother's consent. Your brother has no right tobe there and he has no right to keys, unless there is something I am missing. In my opinion, you are quite entitled to change the locks and lock him out.
Please note that the system automatically offers calls, I have no control over this. If you would like me to call you, I can make a service offering to do this, but I would prefer that you ask rather than having the system foist it upon you!
He is simply a trespasser! You can call the gardai any time he turns up uninvited! Is your mum of sound mind?
I am sorry to hear that. Even if it is her house, he has no automatic entitlement to be there. I would change the locks and not let him in again.
She clearly gave you permission to live there when she was of sound mind, so if he is unhappy about that, the ball is in his court to challenge that legally, which I doubt he will be bothered to do.
Does that help you a bit more? Is there any further information I can help you with?
Thank you very much, I'm glad I've been able to help! Would you kindly please amend your rating for me accordingly? Good luck with your tyrant of a brother, he sounds like a nightmare to deal with!
Thank you so much, I really appreciate that. Please let me know how you get on!
