Restraining a joint mortgage holder?
My partner's mother is going through a divorce at present after the father left to have an affair. Due to his rocky new relationship he keeps turning up drunk (alcoholic) and refusing to leave.
They have a joint mortgage and the house is up for sale as part of the divorce but he is refusing to pay anything towards the house at all in the meantime.
There have been recent unreported acts of physical violence such as throwing hot water over his wife / daughter.
The advice the mother received was that he is entitled to access to the house as a joint name on the mortgage.
Can anyone advise on if / how he can be removed? He is a champion body builder and we dont fancy trying to remove him ourselves.
