My ex partner moved out of our house 9 years ago and I am

This answer was rated:

My ex partner moved out of our house 9 years ago and I am currently applying for transfer of equity with my new partner.
It has been a lengthy process ongoing since February and he is now getting impatient waiting for his money, constantly texting and threatening myself.
He has now informed me if he does not get his money he will be moving back in to the house.
Would you please advise on my rights and I need to get the police involved

Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:

-Has there been a court order regarding the sale?

-When will the transfer of equity happen?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi there has not been a court order and the mortgage company are advising that we should have an outcome by 30 August

Thanks. In that case it is unreasonable that he makes such a threat but the legal position would be that he is allowed to return to the property as it is in joint names unless there is a court order excluding him. If his threats and harassment continue you can contact the police and see if they can assist to warn him about his behaviour.
