I live in florida. Three years ago purchased a house with my then boyfriend. Relationship ended, he moved out but continues to pay half of the mortgage. He had moved his bedroom furniture, clothes into my daughters room, forcing her into the third and smaller bedroom. Is he legally allowed to have a lock on the door to this room? He has stated that he is going to rent out "his 50% of the square footage of the house", can he do this without my knowledge or consent as to the person to be living here? I maintain residence with my eleven year old daughter. Thank you.
