Hi thank you for your message, you would need to give him a s21 notice with 3 months notice at the moment. And you cannot legally evict him at the moment so if he stays beyond the notice period you cannot currently get an order to evict him.
The point that it is only a verbal agreement does not change the fact that he is paying rent so he will be classified as a lodger which is why you need to go through a correct legal process to evict him. The reason you cannot kick him out currently is because of covid there has been emergency legislation passed to prevent this. The difference between you as a wife and someone as a renter, is if someone is renting they have a legal contract with the owner so there are protections there to not be evicted. As a wife not on the mortgage and not renting you do not have those protections because you are there at the will of the person who does own the property like any guest effectively. Of course, in a scenario that your husband would kick you out you could divorce and claim half the house.
No if you owned the property before marriage and you have never lived in it as a married couple it has been rented out then no he can't claim it as it is not a marital asset.
I have just said, no he is not entitled to the property in Enfield.
If you agreed to give him the money and it was not a formal loan with a written repayment agreement then no you cannot claim the money back.
Glad I could help, take care.
Well yes technically you could get renters in as well.
Well yes that makes sense because the agreement is between the lodger and your husband.
