I thought this was worth posting so that I may make the person whose name shall not be mentioned may look at this and see that it is not just him that looks things up on the internet, it is just me that looks at the right things and finds out all the facts as I believe that if we get the facts straight then there is no confusion and everyone understands the situation accurately and appropriately.
Firstly, I wanted to look at the fact that we were in a Joint Tenancy. This means that as long as BOTH parties are paying the rent then BOTH tenants DO have equal rights to the property. This is mitigated when one tenant does not pay their share of the rent (or in our case the housing benefit in both names which we cancelled last week) then they DO NOT have equal rights. Yes his name is on the agreement, but now that is what one would call a moot point as he has lost all claim to ownership when the housing benefit was stopped and my application began.
Now I have already started the ball rolling on a Property Adjustment Order. After speaking to the housing officer and having a chat with a solicitor over the phone, now that this step has begun, it matters not whose name is on that piece of paper even while the order is being done. Basically this means that although the person's name is there, HE DOES NOT HAVE ANY RIGHT TO MY HOME at all and whatsoever. See I can be very organised and I am glad I spoke to a solicitor and got the full story and found out what my rights are.
I say this publicly as I feel that this is something that needs to come out in the open and I think that it needs to be noted this conversation with LHP Law and Rapid Response Solicitors so that if any dispute on his side should arise then I can show the courts the full story. All I want now is to sort out the Property Adjustment Order and get this complicated mess out in the open so that myself and Tom can both be happy together without people coming in to pick fights and saying they have rights when they don't.
YOU DO NOT GO IN TO ANOTHER PERSON'S HOME AND PICK A FIGHT, YES YOU HAD RIGHTS ONCE UPON A TIME BUT LEGALLY NOW, YOU HAD NO RIGHT AT ALL. YOU WILL NEVER BE CROSSING THE THRESHOLD OF MY HOME AGAIN.
