Allow Landlords to evict tenants where there are 14 days rent arrears14:34 PM, 1st October 2020
About 4 weeks ago 99
My tenants split up last week telling me straight away and the guy is going to keep on the flat. The girl moved out and collected her stuff over the weekend, but since it was at the start of the month and short notice, she has paid me half of May’s rent and he has paid the other half.
Now, there seems to be a hoo ha over a dog and he thinks she’s going to come back for the dog and pinch it. My understanding is the dog is hers anyway but that’s by the by.
She has agreed to post me her key asap, but he is now asking to change the locks. Since she has paid rent for May and is still on the lease til I send him a new contract, I don’t know where I stand. She sent me an email formally terminating her tenancy yesterday.
I don’t want to accidentally scupper anything from either side. Also, I’m then concerned if changing the locks is an option, I then don’t have a key for my own property.
Any help would be gratefully received.
