My ex kicked me out of our house, refused to sell and then rented it out. I have correspondence from him stating that all rental income was going on the mortgage and that neither of us would get any money until arrears were paid off. Now the payments were to a joint account. He never let me access this account and I was too scared until recently to get access to it. It turns out the arrears on the mortgage have increased and he has spent thousands of the money that is legally half mine. Would this classed as theft, fraud or what? I have all the text messages from him stating the arrangement but he has just taken every penny for himself. I own half of the house.
I suggest going to the police and reporting financial abuse. There are ways to stop this. you might have to apply to court for a financial order. Dont let him get away with it…..he is trying to destroy your financial stability.
I feel so angry with myself for letting it go on for so long. I have many many texts from him telling me I can’t use the bank……telling me the money is still there, being paid to the mortgage. He has wasted the lot and on top of that he has taken thousands in hand outs from his elderly parents. I have emailed his police worker and asked their advice on what to do next.
