A few years ago I bought an apartment with my daughter and son-in-law, which was registered in our names in equal shares. The relationship between my son-in-law and I has deteriorated as a result of tension in their marriage. Recently I returned home to find the lock had been changed and my personal belongings on the doorstep. Am I entitled to money for the use of my room – and if so, from when ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 10 May, 2022
If the court is satisfied that a person is forced to leave his apartment and that he did not leave of his own free will, then he will be entitled to money for its use from the day he left. If the court is not satisfied that he was forced to leave, he will only be entitled to money for its use if the other owners leased all the apartment or the part the person vacated, for the duration of the let. He will not be entitled to any money if he left voluntarily and the property is not leased out but remains empty.
