Absent Tenant – concerned landlords seeks adviceMake Text Bigger
I have a tenant who first took my house in June 2013. First year was ok, then he told me he was going home to Slovakia for a short while but would return soon, meanwhile he would still pay the rent etc. – which he did.
Then he came back for a while and renewed his tenancy agreement (up to May 2015) and went away again saying he’ll return in early January 2015. But so far he has not returned.
Up to date the rent is being paid but I am becoming concerned about the situation. I have notified my insurer and they are ok provided the heating is left on low and I visit the house once a week. Now the gas bill has gone into arrears and they are suggesting a cut off or pre paid meter. I would prefer a meter and have cooperated with British Gas re keys and access.
Nevertheless, the situation is beginning to worry a little. Anyone got any thoughts/experience on this type of problem?
