My understanding was that I have to legally issue a section 22 notice to get her and her children out of the house are you suggesting that a simply letter giving her 1 or 2 months notice is legally acceptable?
I'm surprized Tom, I didn't realised it was that simple.
Just want to clarify a few points, she has two (2) children resident in ther property (none of which i'm the father) she does pay for bills and food (probably last 8-10 months, occassionally shes contributed towards the mortgage but in total 3-5 months over the last 2 years. She's made no substanstial contribtion towards improvements in the house and did not provide any capital investment at the time of purchase. Do you see any legal problems ?
Thanks Tom, I've been told for the last 8 months that it would take 3 months to get her out and lots of legal costs, what do you know about reposseion law ?
Sorry Tom, I didnt make my question clear it has nothing to do with the x-partner other that she hasn't been effectively contributing to the household for the last year.
I've had a possession order granted by the court on the house but have recently lapse in the payments. I've brought those now upto date and everything is as per the court order but the mortguage company have said they have already applied for a warrent of eviction. I've talked to them and on the basis I've paid the arrears as per the court order (but not fully) they have agree to withdraw the eviction warrant subject to me maintaining future payments (naturally). But they have not withdrawn the warrent at this point. My concern is they will not drop this until the end of the month and the term "review" is used too many times. If they still apply for eviction, what options are open to me and what is the probability of sucess ?
Ok Tom, thanks for the advice, much appreciated.
