Hi Scott


I would go and ask the council to speak to one of the housing officers and explain the circumastances to them as they may not be aware of the situation and do let them know of the false allegation she made to the police.


As both of you are named and signed the tenancy agreement she cannot just change the lock as firstly she would have to get permission from the council as its am ammemdment to the property which is the Councils Property not hers and secondly if she did do this you would have a legal right to get the police involved as she is refusing you access to your property.

My advice is applicable only if the rented premises are entirely within England and Wales, and only if you were granted a tenancy (under which you [and your spouse/partner/children] have exclusive use of a dwelling) and you were over 18 years of age when the tenancy was granted.



Where a tenancy is granted jointly to two or more people, regardless of whether it is a private tenancy or a council tenancy, they each have a legal right to live in the property.


My experience is that a Council will typically only remove a tenant from the agreement if he/she breaks the conditions of the tenancy, or if he/she voluntarily signs a transfer of the tenancy to the other tenant; but will not otherwise change the parties to the agreement.


A divorce court - or a family court if the tenants are not married - can make an order suspending a tenant's right of occupation, if it is in the interests of children aged under 18 years who live at the property.
