I have a signed ED order with Court. I am having house appraised to determine market value to see if I want to buy out ex. I am paying appraiser.

Nowhere in order does it say she is required to be there. This is an appraisal, not an inspection.

Question: Am I required by law to let her be there? I don’t want her there, period. Next, is there anything specific I can do to prevent her from being there?

Note: She abandoned the house along with payments which I have continued to make 3 years ago…


No, she does not have to be present, and actually has no right to enter the home without your permission.
