If the two houses are in joint names then both you and he are free to come and go as you wish. You are no more at liberty to make him move out of one or the other than he is to make you move out of one or the other.
The fact that he may have had or indeed is still having an affair is not relevant to where he lives and it’s not relevant with regard to the ultimate division of any financial assets.
If you are going to divorce or legally separate, then you either need unequivocal proof for the purposes of a divorce court that he has committed adultery or he needs to admit it otherwise you would be divorcing on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour.
If you can’t get divorced perhaps for religious reasons, then you can have a legal separation.
Just living apart is not a legal separation.
Until you start divorce proceedings, then dividing the financial assets is something you would have to agree between you and if you can’t, with no divorce proceedings, all the finances just stay as they are.
Indeed, even during the divorce proceedings you can both come and go in each house as you wish although ultimately, there has to be a division of assets which may be the one person gets one property and the other one gets the other and there is an adjustment of savings and finances or everything gets sold and divided.
The answer to your specific question as to whether you can make him move out is that you can’t, unless there has been any domestic violence when you could get an occupation order to make him move out.
Can I clarify anything else for you? I’m happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
