Tenant going to prison – how do I gain possession of my property?Make Text Bigger
My tenant is possibly going to prison soon for breaching his bail conditions. Will this allow for speedy re-possession of my property, or will I have to obtain a Court Order to gain re-possession?
He has already been served a Section 21 Notice to Quit which expired a couple of days ago. I’ve instructed a solicitor to obtain a Court Order to enforce the Section 21, although will this still be necessary if he gets arrested and held in custody?
He has also stopped paying rent and is over 2 months in arrears now.
If he does go to prison, and should I obtain a Court Order for re-possession, what am I able to do with his belongings which currently remain in the property?
All advice is greatly appreciated.
