Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

My ‘darling’ tenant has done a bunk and left yesterday. Neighbours saw him shifting stuff in the night.
I had a call from his ex-girlfriend this morning stating he had called her to say the same and also to tell her that her stuff was now on the street too.
I was in the process of eviction anyway due to rent arrears (surprise, surprise). But now what?
1. Do I still need to go through the full eviction process with the courts?
2. What’s an Abandonment Notice?
I am planning to visit the flat tomorrow as a result and had thought I could change the locks as he both still has a set of keys and so does the ex-girlfriend. Can I still do this?
He has a Deposit Bond with the Council so I have already filled the claim in for this and sent off in readiness as this will cover all the rent arrears.
I have never been in this situation before and wondered how to progress?
