Customer reply replied 2 years ago
They are in BC, legally married and live in a housing co-op

I'm not certain about when the "matrimonial home" is a housing co-op. I'm going to opt out of this question, and another expert should pick it up. Please be patient.

When the matrimonial home is in a housing cooperative it is the same as if there was a lease. That means both spouses have an equal right to possess the home. At the same time, no spouse has the right to damage the home and it would make sense for your daughter to call the police.

Let me know if you need any further clarification.
