I’m a landlord. I rented my property out 12 months ago. In the last two months. The tenant has abandoned the property and fallen short on rent. My letting agent and I, have been trying to get hold of the tenant via phone, email and letters.
We wanted to go and inspect the property so we called the tenant, agreed a time, went to inspect, no one answered the door. Locks had been changed, all upstairs windows left open. Next day neighbour reported windows are closed. Tenants cousin had come back emptied the property, stole the washing machine. Agent has issues S21.
Went back to inspect one toilet window left open for weeks. On advice called locksmith, entered property. All empty apart from cannabis, heating lamps, holes in ceilings and carpet damage.
I’m getting mixed advice. Some saying that I have to wait until s21 expires before repossessing. How do I go about claiming rent or damaged from DPS and quickest way to get property back on market? Is S8 necessary.
This is my first rental property and very first tenant, I can’t believe my Luck!!!
