Please help me out guys. After a nitemare couple of years its finally over and I want her gone quick. Its my house in my name and I pay pretty much the lot. Its time she left and took all of her shit with her.Its affecting my biking now and thats not good! I know I cant just kick her out and change the locks so does anyone know the legal way to do it. There must be a legal eagle on here..Comedy suggestions also welcome!Posted 7 years ago
Break up sex, before you do anything.Posted 7 years ago
Have you actually asked her to leave?Posted 7 years ago
Your house and your name I assume you can simply call the cops.
Nicer to just give a date she has to be out byPosted 7 years ago
Screwing the sister/best friend might help ease things along…Posted 7 years ago
Stop showering?Posted 7 years ago
The only legal way to force her out is an eviction order. Better off bringing a new woman home, or a man and claim your gay!Posted 7 years ago
Move your new GF in, that should giver a hint. 😀Posted 7 years ago
I know I cant just kick her out and change the locks
Why not if it’s your house? Not trolling, am interested, and assumed as a non married partners you could do just that.Posted 7 years ago
Hate to say it but lived there 2 years she’s entitled to 50% and there’s not much you can do about it…….:(Posted 7 years ago
Boring sensible suggestion if you’re worried – ring housing dept at local council, explain the ( relevant) details and get advice on housing options. That way you won’t get caught out.Posted 7 years ago
Asked her yeah and shes all smug about it saying I can’t get rid of her. Shes stalling until she finds somewhere else to go but I want her gone yesterday!!Posted 7 years ago
I know I cant just kick her out and change the locks
Well if its your house… why can’t you?
Obviously it would be kinder to ask first, give her a date. But doesn’t sound like she has any rights.
– Start pooing in her bed.
– Set up a camera in the bathroom with a sticker for http://www.skankonthebog.com
– burst into her room at 3 in the morning dressed as a priest, splashing her with water shouting “The power of Christ compells you, the power of Christ comPELLS you!”Posted 7 years ago
The 2 year thing doesn’t count for much as a lot of people believe unless they have made a significant contribution to improving the property and even then its not 50%Posted 7 years ago
Bring a girl back from a club and say ‘oops’. She will have her dignity.Posted 7 years ago

Doesnt quite just work like that. If the OP has made her pay anything towards rent or bills in acknowledgement of her staying in the house, he is pretty safe. She’d have a loooooong way to go to prove, as his ex GF, that she’s entitled to any of it, let alone half.
Just slap an eviction date on her. Probably unreasonable to put it at any shorter than a month, but you shouldn’t have to wait any longer either. No need to get nasty about it or do anything stupid either, just let her know as a tennant in your house, she is (and always has been) subject to being evicted by the landlord at any point with a months notice…Posted 7 years ago
Sounds like a crappy situation though, you have my sympathy.
Can’t help but think attitudes towards this would be different if a bloke refused to leave his ex-girlfiends house?Posted 7 years ago
Are you the chap that’s just taken up naturism?Posted 7 years ago
Get her to lose her rag at you and hit you/throw something at you
then phone the police
job jobbed!Posted 7 years ago
Some great ideas guys… If I give her a date then and she is still here can I then legally start to remove her stuff from the house? What do you reckon.Posted 7 years ago
I dont think she can stay or get 50% she would need to go to court for the later as presently she has no contract to stay there and she is not naed on th eland registry or mortgage
give her 48 hrs to get out of dodge then change the locks and send her a letter asking her how /when she wishes to collect her stuff.
She may sue you but it is unlikely.
IIRC she needs to have made some investment such as paid for a new kitchen , conservatory type thing to have any claim as anything else would be “rent”
I bet she has not seen a lawyer so be prepared for her smug look to disappear.
if she is a mentalist or likely to act as one move a friend in as a witness in case she alleges assault or something similar
can I then legally start to remove her stuff from the house? What do you reckon.
better to remove her and leave the stuff in the house untouched so as not to damage it or get sued for damaging it
It is her you want out….when she is gone she will want her stuff.Posted 7 years agocheeezzy24 wrote:

give her 2 months, your A) being nice B) just in time for bonfire night 😀Posted 7 years ago
My understanding of the circumstances are that if the home owner has not granted the Ex exclusive possession of the property, the Ex will occupy the property under licence rather than a tenancy and therefore the Ex does not have the same legal entitlement as a Tenant.
Therefore, you have a NON Housing Act tenancy which requires a Notice to Quit i.e. in writing, giving 4 weeks notice and contain specific wording by law.
If owner changes the locks, they will be committing a criminal offence.
might be worth calling into your local C.A.B.Posted 7 years ago
A few years ago a customer had the same problem, he went to work, and came home and found the front door axed in, a lot of stuff missing, as he rang the police a neighbour called round to say his girlfreinds dad had been round and taken what he thought belonged to his daughter.
Police called round after the neighbours reported door, being axed in, because the girl actually lived there and had proof, they left when she said she had lost the keys, actually the locks had been changed.
Be careful and change the locks when she is gone, and just hope she stays away.Posted 7 years ago
Wee in her shoes?Posted 7 years ago
Assuming you’ve asked her to leave [yes|no?], has she explained why she hasn’t left yet?
[or this this just too reasonable to mention?]Posted 7 years ago
bloody men, cant do the simplest of things.
what would a woman do?
while the locksmith is changing the locks…
take scissors to all her clothes, put everything in black bin bags and dump them in the street…
begin proceedings with small claims for unpaid rent…
bad mouth her to anyone who will listen, all of this should be ridiculous lies.
or the subtle approach, take one scotch bonnet chilli, chop in half, rub the gusset of all her knickers with the chilli. bosh.Posted 7 years ago
One of these in the garden – tell her you can’t be arsed with the botherPosted 7 years ago
Never ever have sex one last time with her, just in case she deliberately gets pregnant, that happens as well.Posted 7 years ago

Buzz- asked her and she is just playing for time really until she finds somewherePosted 7 years ago
are you borrowing her underwear yet? If not, why not??Posted 7 years ago

OK she’s just hanging around and walking all over you, taking advantage of your kind nature. So just give her notice to leave in a time-frame that suits you and is not unreasonable for her (she can find somewhere for a 6 month tenancy within a month). Then it would be an eviction order and you should lock her out. That’s it. Good luck.Posted 7 years ago

Man this is cheering me up. Cheers allPosted 7 years ago

If shes just playing for time, she’s essentially just playing you!
Has she not heard of rightmove.co.uk? There’s plenty of house share websites with rooms for rent available almost immediately too…
She knows you’re a soft touch and is taking you for a mug. When you see her tonight, tell her she’s got a month from today’s date, otherwise that’s it, you’ll move her stuff out and change the locks… Simple really!Posted 7 years ago
