My partner and I have split, we have been together 10 days

Customer Question

My partner and I have split, we have been together 10 days short of 2 years. He has told me I have 2 days to leave the house. (It was his house previous to me moving in)
Please can some one please tell me what rights (IF any) I have. Can I refuse to move? Currently I have no where to move to.
Thanks Debbie.

The time by which you can claim a half share is three years so before that your claim is for contributions. That will be based on the actual money plus support as his partner. But if you don't have any place to go, he cannot force you to move without a court order. If he threatens you you could even get a protection order and he would have to move.
