Unfortuately, if these are homes you own jointly with your husband, there is nothing you can do: a property owner has the right to bring guests to the property. Only if you divorce, and in the divorce decree or settlement is there an order or agreement to not have the mistresa over--or the property is divided, so you own some of it solely--can you keep her out.
