I have a tenant that I have not been able to contact for several months regarding a gas safety check. The rent comes in each month from housing benefit and the tenant is not in arrears. Although he has always been unreliable and disorganised we have previously been able to contact him eventually. This time there has been no response to phone calls, letters and even a section 21.
As he is on housing benefit we have even spoken to the council to see if they have had any dealings with him recently but they have not.
It is of course feasible that he has simply moved on but he had no reason to and there is certainly no reason why he wouldn’t inform us or at least return calls.
I am now beginning to think there is a possibility he could have died. If this were to be the case, what are my options. Can I enter the property on this suspicion alone? The tenant hasn’t at any point refused me entry but neither has he consented to it either.
