My brother has been letting out a mid terrace house privately to a tenant for three years, lady with children and a dog, then three months ago it went to council rent – only one month was paid and then they told him she was leaving.
She stopped paying rent and he cant get into the house as the locks have been changed to mortice locks.
She said she had posted keys but didn’t, he texted her, she’s being very rude and has told him that the the domestic violence team put in the locks plus alarms to windows, and have deadlocked front door with metal strip.
He knew about none of this. My question is does he get the door broken down and can he get the Domestic violence team to pay for any of the work required?
Are they allowed to do this on rental property without his permission?
