Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today.

It’s not easy dealing with this kind of thing and you have my sympathy. I will do everything I can to help.
Doing firstly with the harassment, because he is in France there are very limited remedies open to you because the Scottish court will not really be of any help to you. You should get your solicitor to issue a letter to him, however, stating that you will take all steps that you can to stop the harassment and you could, of course, block him from calling you. More important is the house and you have to decide whether or not you are prepared to sell the house. That may be the only thing that you can do here. Because you are not married you would each be entitled to take away from the house what you put into it and if he has not contributed to the mortgage for the last period then you would get credit for having to make up his share.If he refuses to reach a sensible resolution then it is open to you to ask the court to have the property is sold and the proceeds divided in a manner which the court considers to be fair.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
Tell him that you’re fed up with his behaviour and that if he persists you’ll block him, he can deal with your solicitor and you will go to the court to have the house sold and seek the whole costs of this from him. You have to start fighting fire with fire here I think.
