An occupation order grants the applicant the right to occupy a home. The court can decide who should or should not reside in all or part of the home. Occupation orders can also exclude the other person from an area around the home. When in force, an order can also deal with practical matters of occupation, including who bears responsibility for payment of the rent or mortgage on the property and whether the occupying party should pay a rent to the other person. These applications can be challenging as the court does not interfere with the rights of the owner or tenant to occupy a property easily. It essential to seek expert guidance if you require this protection. Our team will consider with you the factors that the court must take into account when deciding whether to make an order and assess your prospects of succeeding on an application for an occupation order.
