Thanks for your patience.
Who is named on the registered title for the property please?
Thanks for your patience .
If only your friend is the only registered proprietor of the property on thr land registry title then she can refuse occupation by her mother's new partner. This is assuming that the mother does not have any written agreement or tenancy agreement which states she may allow people access. However she should consider how this will affect her relationship with her mother.
If the mother worth to take an aggressive position then she may ultimately Seek to conjure up a claim to an interest in the property but to do this she would have to litigate and legal fees are very expensive in this regard with no legal aid.
If you are satisfied please kindly leave feedback.
If neither mother or sister are named on the registered title for the property and have not been given an interest in the property by your friend in the form of a "declaration of trust" (ie. stating they have a percentage of the equity of the property) then they have no legal right to compel a sale.
Only if they were given an interest at Court would then potentially be able to compel a sale and to do this they would have to litigate and it's a complex area with no legal aid.
