When a relationship is over one of the hardest decisions will be who leaves.
Both you and your spouse or ex-partner are entitled to live in your home after separation regardless of whose name is on the rental agreement or the title of the property.
Neither party can be forced to leave just because the property is not in their name, unless the Court orders it.
Decided to move out?
If you have decided to move out, you should be aware that leaving the property it will not affect your entitlement to a share of the property. Any rights you have built up during the relationship will remain even if you leave.
If you fear violence, you should seek advice immediately and take steps to ensure your immediate safety.
