Property Repair – while awaiting evictionMake Text Bigger
After almost a year, I finally obtained a possession order, with the agreement of the tenant, that they will move out and hand the property back to me on 11th August. the property will require redecorating, and some minor repairs before the next tenant moves in. However, I do not expect the tenant to move on the agreed date as I am sure the local council will advise them to remain until such time as an eviction warrant is exercised. This could add a further 5-6 weeks before I finally get the property back.
My question is, if I arrange for decorators and builders to attend the property on the 12th August, and the tenant is still in the property, could this potentially cause me problems and give the tenant an excuse not to leave?
