Hello, my name is***** hope you are well today. I am a qualified Solicitor, and I will be able to help you by providing you with an answer to your question today. I specialise in UK and Irish Law. I am not always online but rest assured if I do not respond immediately I will respond when I return.
May I ask for a brief description of your scenario at the moment? Please bear with me as I will reply shortly once the circumstances have been narrated. Thank you.
In this situation, the decision will usually depend on your discretion. If you think your husband can help you, you can include him. There will be risk involved if you'll be in a joint tenancy with him. Once you have a joint tenancy and your relationship with your joint tenant (husband) has broken down, either of you may remove the name from the tenancy agreement with the local authority or housing association.
If your joint tenant agrees to have their name removed, the local authority or housing association will do this. However, if they refuse to have their name removed, it is more complicated, and you will have to provide evidence that the relationship has broken down.
Unfortunately, you'll have to discuss this with your local authority. I'd advise contacting them today.
No problem. Thank you for your enquiry today. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have further enquiries in the future. We are always happy to help.
