Property inspection refused and locks changed

Thanks Rob,

The gas check is due in about two weeks or so. I'll arrange for the gas inspector, who I know very well, to make an appointment with him and then deliver another letter to him advising that I will be coming to carry out an inspection at the same time as the gas inspector.

If he does not agree to this then I will resort to your suggestion

I cannot understand why he is being so uncooperative. It's not like I am requesting an inspection very often. The last one was over two years ago and since then he has changed the locks.
I wouldn't mind not having a set of keys if he would only cooperate.... Read More

Many thanks to you all for the valuable advice. I have plenty of food for thought now and am most grateful for all the information given.

I shall proceed in the first instance,with the visit along with the gas engineer, which is due very soon,

I have also found out what an s21 is and hope I don't have to resort to that, But will bear it mind in the future.
Thanks again

Hi Chris,

I am quite happy with the rent he is paying and it is around the same as other properties in the area or maybe lower.
I don't think there is anything sinister going on at the premises but my concern is the fact that he works away from home quite regularly and I am worried that the house maybe getting damp through being unheated and unaired which I presume I have to declare on the insurance.
I know the neighbours quite well and they have verified that he does seem to be away very often.
He has always allowed the gas check to be carried out so I'm hoping to maybe gain entry when the gas engineer next visits, giving him notice to do so of course.
In the meantime I may send another NICE letter and get proof of posting as someone has suggested. I don't think he would be there to sign for a recorded delivery.What is an s21?
I really don't want to be harassing him but he is in breach of quite a few tenancy rules.
Kind Regards

Hi Neil,
I have the tenant's mobile number, but it goes to voicemail and he totally ignores my messages and texts, although he knows my landline and mobile number. He apparently works away from home quite a lot so it is very hard to chat to him via a visit he never seems to be there. The messages and letter have always been on a respectful and friendly term and I have assured him that we in no way want to encroach on his privacy but have to carry out an inspection.
The tenancy is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement.
The Gas check is due in a couple of weeks and previously there has been no problem when the gas engineer has done the annual check. If he can get a date for this gas check would it be a good idea to say that we will visit at the same time, giving him notice of course?
Kind regards
