If you’re living in the property you shared with your ex, you might like to consider making a few changes.
In previous tips we’ve extolled the virtues of how much better you’ll feel by changing a few items in your wardrobe, particularly night attire and underwear and in the lounge, how fresh new cushion covers can help make a difference too.
However, if you really don’t want them crossing your threshold unless invited, you might like to change the locks and give yourself a stronger feeling of security. If you jointly own the property, things can get complicated and whilst your ex may have rights, remember, you do too.
If the situation between you has been abusive in any way, or you simply do not feel safe, it might be a very wise course of action. You can advise your ex’s solicitor that you are not restricting them from collecting any of their things, but your safety and well being come first.
