I had a tenant who appears to have left the property three months ago, at least that’s when he stopped paying rent or answering his phone.
The house is still occupied by a woman who wasn’t on the original tenancy and I assume she’s his girlfriend.
Ive contacted a solicitor and set about gaining possession. A lengthy and expensive process an my issue is this:
The person in occupation is not the tenant and so where do I stand in terms of getting her out. Does she have the same rights as the actual tenant or is she a squatter?
Obviously I cant say for sure he has gone or maybe he will return.
I just worry his guest may add complications to the process if in fact he has gone.
The risks associated with illegal eviction, missed rent payments and possible damage to your property if tenant eviction is badly handled are significantly reduced by paying for professional advice or services.
