Thank you.

If your section 21 notice lapses and the landlord will evict you then yes they do have to rehouse you and if you do not live with your exhusband and have no access or right to the mortgage house that isn't yours then they cannot deny you housing  for being on the mortgage. You will however need to be prepared to answer the questions why you remain on the mortgage if your divorce has finalised and you have no reason to remain on the mortage if you are not paying towards the repayments.

Any follow up please do not hesitate to send your message. Always glad to clarify. All the best.
