Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 3 weeks ago 69
We rent out a furnished apartment via a letting agent. We have just inspected with the letting agent present and the tenant has removed all the furniture from the second bedroom and a table and chairs from the dining room. He has also turned the second bedroom into a study.
We were asked by the agent if we would agree to the tenant removing furniture and expressly said no – it was to stay. We are now trying to get the agent to tell us where and how the furniture is being stored.
The tenant blithely told us it was in his girlfriends house! How do we get the agent to get the tenant to put in writing where the furniture is, that it is safely stored, is appropriately insured against loss or damage and is replaced in the apartment on termination of the tenancy and in the same condition before it was removed.
Our apartment has been rented out for 5 years to various tenants and this is the first time we have come across this.
