My husband died last year leaving me the house which is now in my name. My stepson who is at uni during term time is home during the summer. I feel that after he finishes uni he should move out and get on with his life, also he is very inconsiderate , very messy and very noisy. He is nearly 23!Where do I stand on this matter?
Province/Country relating to question : England
None as yet as I do not know where to start.
HiWas there any provision in the Will for you to house him?Has he made any financial contribution to the house?Claire
There was no provision in the will. he just pays £25 a week when he is home, he was left financially secure.
No provision was made for me to house him. He has been left financially secure. He pays £25 a week when he is home.
HiThen he has no right to live with you unless you wish him to do so.You are entitled to give him reasonable written notice that you wish him to move out (28 days is reasonable) after which time you can change the locks and pack up his belongings for collectionClaire
Thank you Claire your reply has been very helpful.
HIYou are most welcome - good luckClaire
