The length of marriage might have some effect on her claim on any joint property, whether in joint or sole names, bought DURING the marriage.

Your property appears to have been bought after divorce, so it should be yours, and yours alone. Unless it was bought with money that would be classed as a joint asset at the time of divorce. A divorce settlement normally has this covered. An interesting, but old, page on this: Division of matrimonial property in Australia

Whether she is allowed to live with you is your decision. But being divorced she cannot force a situation where she has to live with you.

A lawyer might be best to be sure, based on your exact situation, not a forum.
