Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 3 weeks ago 69
My tenant was given 2 months notice when the house was put on the market (1 yr ago) but allowed to stay on a month-by-month basis until sale of the property or she found a Council house.
A sale was agreed in October (over 4 months ago) and she was notified. So since then it has been delay after delay in her moving out, her harassing the buyers (who live in the next street) but finally the moving van arrived Monday and she was supposed to return the keys to the estate agent/letting agents Wednesday, but of course, she hasn’t.
She cannot be reached on the phone, hasn’t asked after her bond and of course we haven’t been able to check the property without the keys.
We’re very sure that she is not there and that she has removed her things.
So can we now change the locks to gain access to the property and get on with the sale which has been delayed by 4 months!
