We have a couple on a joint tenancy who have now separated and the police have taken the keys off the male tenant and given them to the female tenant.
She has requested he is taken off the joint tenancy agreement which is now periodic, however, he still has his tenancy rights regardless of the police action to confiscate his keys to the house.
So my question is has anyone had this experience and can he be removed from the tenancy without court action, personally I don’t think he can unless he gives up his right to the tenancy and agrees to be removed.
There will be an exclusion order put in place by the court to keep him away from her however this takes time in a pandemic, so the Police are asking us to act.
Our hands are a bit tied though as if we remove him from the tenancy without his permission that’s an illegal eviction.
Any experienced advice welcome
