I wonder if you could give me an advise?me and my husband

Customer Question

hi, i wonder if you could give me an advise?me and my husband jointly own a residential property and we rent this out to my friends with a contract we obtained from web and is agreed and signed by both of us as owners.yesterday out of the blue the tenants told me that they received a letter from my husband asking them to vacate the property by end of expiry of break close (in 45 days) time. He mentioned this is because, we have separated and divorce is under way, (which I had no idea!!!) also says, the property will be liquidated for divorce settlement. We have 3 children together(10 yr, 7 yr and 3 yr) and all stay with me, last Tuesday we had an argument and he moved to his brothers .i am totally devastated and helpless,I pay the mortgage for the property from the rent received and the rest is for children maintenance and i have no intention of selling the house or vacating the tenants. Is there any way I could stop him doing the eviction or sale? This is our principal family home even though, we are living in another house owned by myself for better schooling for our daughter, and the plan was to move back to our family home after an year.He recently lost his job and unemployed and this triggered the ego and complex etc.He has no income coming and has difficulty paying the loans etc. The joint rental income comes in to our joint account and mortgage goes from same account.And he has the access to the joint account, I always asked him to use the money due to the job loss, but due to his pride and jealousy he is borrowing from his brother he says and always refused my offer and infact threatened me once that he will go out if l transfer any money to him But he says to everyone that i am not giving him any money!!. Kindly give what should i do here. Thank you
