Hi, Can anybody help me? About 4 months ago my tenant rang me to ask if I had any other properties available that she, and her family, could move into asap.
Apparently “some bad lads” had threatened her partner and they needed to get away immediately.
I told her that, unfortunately, I had no vacant properties. I advised her to inform both the Police and the Council about her situation, which she said she had already done.
About a week or so later she texted me to say that everything was Ok and sorted.
Then, about 3 weeks ago, I get a call from the Council asking whether or not the Tenancy Agreement was still valid. I asked why it wouldn’t be as the tenants were still living there. The lady apologised for being the bearer of bad news, but the tenants had moved out about a month ago on the advice of the Police.
Then I get payment for the rent of one week instead of one month which, of course, I query with Housing Benefits. It transpires that they knew that the tenants had moved (change of circumstances).
So the Police and the Council have moved my tenant but nobody bothered to inform me.
I have tried to contact the tenants and their relatives with no success.
As of the 19th November the tenants will be 8 weeks in arrears so what is my position on repossessing the property. As far as I know, the property has been left unoccupied and vulnerable to squatters and/or vandals for over 3 months.
