Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 2 weeks ago 69
I am desperately looking for advise. I have had a tenant via Social Services for 3 years. I needed my property back so I served her notice to leaver under Section 21 in June 2016. She was due to leave in September 2016.
Social services extension to stay on her behalf, which I granted. I was told that she would be rehoused on 7th April 2017. She rang me, packed her bags and left the house to ask the council to house her.
She only took stuff for temporary accommodation for 3-4 days. She said she will collect the rest later.
I got a phone call from the council that I have acted illegally by changing the locks.
Please can someone advise if that’s the case?
