Ancillary order in respect to furniture

An Ancillary Order allows the victim-survivor to ask for his/her furniture. But he/she needs to apply for an occupation or tenancy order first.

On or after making an occupation or tenancy order, the Court may:

  • Make an order granting to the applicant the use, of all or any furniture, appliances and other household effects in the residence to which the order relates, for the period and on such terms and conditions as the Court deems reasonable
  • Where appropriate, order the applicant, the respondent or both of them, to contribute to the loan or mortgage repayments and repairs or maintenance of the said residence
