I own my property along with my mother and brother as Tenants in Common. I currently live in the property and so does my mum. In 2019, I allowed a family relative to move into the property, my mother and brother also agreed to this.
At the time, since we were family, I only gave them a very simple 1-page document that basically listed how much our family relative had to pay each month for their room and services within the household and where to send their payment.
In the following years, when I have increased her room/rent and services price, I have done so via emails whereby I simply created a spreadsheet for the adults within the household and then created a section for her where it included how much she was to pay each month.
Unfortunately, now the relationship between me and the family relative has completed disintegrated due to her behaviour. My brother has even moved out of the property now.
I now want to serve her an eviction notice for her to move out of the property.
My family relative has formed a very close alliance with my mother. So I feel there is a strong chance that my mother will try and do everything she can to prevent me from evicting my family relative.
Therefore, since my brother, mother and I own the property as Tenants in Common, I would particularly like to understand whether my mother could legally prevent me from evicting my family relative from the property?
Could my mother for example offer a new tenancy agreement to my family relative, against mine and my brother’s will, and therefore prevent me from evicting my family relative?
My family relative is in her late 20’s, a graduate and in a full-time graduate job.
