Welcome to JA. I’m Vineet, a UK qualified & practicing Solicitor and I will be dealing with your case today.
You could have opted for the Occupation order and change of tenancy regarding the council house for taking over the tenancy in your sole name and refraining your husband from entering the house.
Have you already relinquished your half of the tenancy?
Get in touch with the council and explain to them the situation that you would be homeless, if alternative arrangement /housing can be secured for you.
If not, then you can take back this relinquishment notice, and rather apply for Occupation order with a change of tenancy to get the tenancy to your name.
An occupation order is a court order which specifies who is and who is not able to live in the family home and/or who can enter the surrounding area. An occupation order can also be used to gain the right to return to the family home
It would have to be with the same council
