Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 2 weeks ago 69
I would be grateful if you could help me. I have just evicted a housing benefit tenant over a protracted eviction process; she had been renting from me since 2011. She owes approximately £5,000 in rent – I had told her that she was welcome to stay as long as she likes and as long as she pays the rent but she not only dipped into the monthly payments on three occasions, she also has not paid the shortfall. However, she had installed a new kitchen and bathroom albeit without my permission (written or otherwise).
The question I would like to pose is that after eviction she will be returning to collect her goods, furniture, personal items etc – is she allowed to remove light fittings, light sockets, installed gas fires affixed to wall or does that now form part of the fabric of the property?
