Can I go into the property, repossess and changed the locks?Make Text Bigger
Can I go into the property, repossess and changed the locks after the date of the Court Order? My tenant is out for a while without telling me he is leaving nor giving the keys back to me. It seems he has moved out by the way letters were hanging out of a letter box, but I am not 100% sure and he has not returned the keys.
My tenant owed me the rent arreas of £10,850 so far. He was served with a court order stating thst he should leave by 17th December. If he does not leave by then, I need to spend another £700-£1,000 pound for a High Court bailiff.
He didn’t come to court hearing, does not answer the phone call nor reply to my messages or email.
Can I assume that he has left and change the locks? I cannot lose more money for a bailiff and tommorow is the day he is supposed to be gone. He is not in contact with me nor with my solicitor. I am worried about the state of the house deteriorating, being broken and the council tax and all.
It took me over 6 months without getting paid rent with someone living in my property free and I paid the mortgage and my own rent!
Thank you for your kind help.
