Housing rights in a relationship breakdown can be complicated and you may need to seek legal advice.
If you have a joint tenancy or own a property with your ex partner you may still have rights to occupy the place you are living in together.
You may need advice about the law. The Government’s website, GOV.UK, has a web page where you can Find a Legal Aid Advisor.
