Hello again. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. There is no specific course of action is proposed and no attorney-client relationship or privilege formed within this conversation. (You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.)

Are you sure you want to do this? Because it may not be practical. You have a choice:

File for legal separation and ask who is to control the home as part of that (see HERE); or

File a lawsuit for something called partition.

Both options mean litigation and emotional/financially exhausting actions. Consider this carefully before doing anything.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
