my ex, who was arrested for assaulting me, still has some property

Customer Question

my ex, who was arrested for assaulting me, still has some property stored in my loft. I have told him he will have to wait until I have someone to help me as I cannot get stuff out on my own-it has been up there for 10yrs+so is not essential. It is also behind masses of other stuff so not easily accessible. He is being difficult now because he has found out the house is on the market and thinks he is entitled to a share. It is MY house. Where do I stand?
