Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 3 weeks ago 69
I have rented a property from a Landlord and let the property on a corporate let to a Charity who then place social housing tenants to live in it.
Yesterday, without asking me, or giving me notice, the property owner changed the front door, and therefore the lock, and omitted to give me or anyone else keys.
Between 10 and 11 pm, four new tenants arrive with all their stuff to find they cannot get into their new home and have to be put up in hotels for the night.
It took until 3 am to sort it all out last night with cab fares etc on top. The front door fitted also has only a Yale lock, so will not conform for our insurance purposes. To top it off I had fitted new locks to the existing front door to increase security in the first place.
Where do I, the charity and the tenants stand on this?
Many thanks Ed
