Speak to someone urgently if you’re being abused in your home.  Women’s Aid helps people affected by domestic abuse. It provides help, advice and counselling to men and women. In an emergency call 999 for help.

Selling a home that you and your former partner jointly own can be complicated. You'll usually need to get legal advice from a solicitor who can explain what will happen to the property.

Know what your rights are if you rent your home from the Housing Executive or housing association but can't continue living with your partner.

Get help as soon as you can if you are worried that you might become homeless. Talk to someone about your rights and options. You might be able to make things better in your current home. 

It can be hard to know what to do if you split up or fall out with someone you're living with. Your rights in this situation depend on your status and what your tenancy agreement says. Your rights depend on the type of tenancy you have. If you're experiencing domestic violence or you feel unsafe in your home get advice immediately.
