Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020
About 7 days ago 39
I have been granted an eviction order on my property for breeches of contract all relating to non payment. Tenants are a couple with two young children however he is the only name on contract and she is a named tenant.
Five days to go until the vacation date and I sent them both a text suggesting I take possession of the keys at a time of their choosing to ensure the property isn’t left unattended and any damage done by others.
She is now saying he no longer lives there and it’s not enough time to move out and intends to seek advice. I’m aware that if they don’t vacate I have to apply for a warrant but was hoping to avoid them being removed from the house and they would go of their own accord. I’m starting to get the impression this is not going to be as easy as I thought,or is it just a formality?
At this late stage in the day can she change the ruling or is it done?
Any advice greatly appreciated.
