Possession date – tenant still in – what next ?

This is the first time I have formally evicted a tenant with the aid of a solicitor – He obtained an order for possession in 2 days time.

The tenant (LHA) will not communicate with me. I could phone her mother (guarantor) but she gets very abusive and I doubt she would want to answer any questions truthfully. I live 5 hours drive away and have been successfully self managing until this point. Neighbours tell me there are still lights on in the house from time to time – but the neighbours work and probably wont see a day-time moving out….

How am I to find out if she has actually moved – or should I just inform the solicitor to get the bailiffs in ?

This is also the first time I will have had to keep a deposit (registered with Mydeposits). Any advice as to how to do that ?

Thank you

I had 2 clawbacks at the same time, £246 and £2500 ! I paid the £246 and they told me the other was a 'cliche' in the system! I feel this was a frightener to knock me into! Their attitude has changed so much these days. A present tenant tells me he's still awaiting his U.C. and has no paperwork or ref number as it's arranged over the phone and very slow. It's seems this may be true as someone else elsewhere says the same! I also feel they load tenants on to private sector cos then there are no council house maintainence worries plus the odd clawback!!
