Hello, My tenant hasn’t paid a penny since he moved in in May 2023, so I have been trying to get him out, serving him a Section 8 Grounds 8,10,11 & 14 and when he didn’t move out, I eventually went to court where the judge said he’d give him 14 days to move out.
We went to court 3 weeks ago and they still haven’t sent a letter to say he needs to move out. (The tenancy also ran out 1 week ago).
However the gas certificate is due in 1 week.
So, a couple of questions:
1) Do I have to carry out the gas check while he is still in there? Considering the tenancy agreement has run out.
2) If the plumber says there’s an issue with the boiler / gas and has to shut the gas off. If the tenant moves out till the issue is fixed, can I take back the property while he is out?
I presume he is not living in there legally if the tenancy agreement has run out and the section 8 notice ran out 2 months ago, so would it be OK to take back the property?
