I divorced my ex wife over a year ago, she has been moved out of the house i am renting for going on two years. She refuses to remove her name from the lease through the property management company. She is constantly telling me that she is coming to take things that were purchased while we were together. I fear that she can enter the property and remove any items she wants without consequence.
Did you get an order that gave you exclusive use and control of the residence? Do you have an order as to the division of property items? Lets start with that then I can give you better advice.
Have you discussed with the management company? If she has been out for over a year, she has legally abandoned the lease and they or you with their consent can have the locks changed.
