^hello^

I was just wondering if you could advise me. My DH own 50% of the house that his mum and dad live in. His mum own the other 50%. The thing is the relationship has broken down between them, we are living in a council flat which is unsafe for our new baby but the council refuse to move us and we could do with either getting half the house or his share of the money. The house is in really bad repair and his mum is  disabled and his dad elderly. They have refused to give him a key to his own property and refuse to let us live there. We went to get advice before but theywere very unclear of what our rights were and as my DH was going through cancer we decided to leave it. I was just wondering if he has any rights?

Thanks

Jenny

Hi Jenny

Thank you for your post.  Unfortunately I think your query falls outside the scope of what advice we can provide on this board.  The board is intended to give legal support on fertility issues and your query doesn't really fall within that.

Natalie is on holiday at the moment and I do not know whether she will be able to help.  I specialise in employment law and disputes over property are not something I can help with.

If you are looking for free advice it may be worth you approaching your local Citizens Advice Bureau. 

Best wishes

Hi Jenny

This isn't really my area of law, but I believe you can apply to court in the circumstances you describe and they will decide whether you can realise your share of the property.  I don't know very much about this, but I do have colleagues who specialise in this area of law.  If you would like me to put you in touch, let me know.

Best wishes.

Natalie

Sorry to bring this up again. I was just wondering if you could tell me as my DH owns half the house are we entitled to move back into the property? Can we insist on a key to the property as they are stopping having access to what is half his property?

Thanks

Hi Jenny

Again, this isn't something which is in my area of expertise and not really within the remit of this board.  If you'd like me to refer you on to my property law colleagues who specialise in this area let me know.  You might want to try your local citizens' advice bureau who should be able to give you some free legal advice.

Good luck.
Natalie
