Hi, probably a little strange but my partner and I have separated.  We jointly own four BTL properties and one of the properties has become vacant.  We are going through a difficult divorce and either of us could end up owning this one.  When the tenant gave notice (May 22) he placed an advert on OpenRent without my knowledge, I was not happy but went along with it for ease.  I wanted to be there when potential tenants viewed but he made it so difficult I gave in and allowed him to do it all.  He said that none of them were suitable but would not give me reasons why.  He then announced he wanted 100 per day fee for being at the house and carrying out small jobs (that we would just do as owners).  I said that I would go over and do it all, get a Letting Agent (his request) to find tenants but now hes is saying that he will not allow any tenants to move in until we replace the kitchen and decorate throughout.  Don't get me wrong, it needs a good clean and possibly some decoration but not throughout and not a new kitchen (doors replacing at most).  I want the house let ASAP as it is a risk being empty and I also need the income as we both take an income from the rentals (mine subsidises my own rent).  He does not need the income so is not bothered about it being empty.  Is there anything I can do?  I do not want to involve my solicitor if I can help it as I already have a huge bill due to his other unhelpful behaviour.  Thanks

This is a matrimonial/divorce problem,and not something a landlord forum can deal with. You really do need to get your solicitor involved,hope you have a good one.
