Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019
About 4 weeks ago 124
I have a tenant who text me on 17th March to say she would be moving out by the weekend as she couldn’t afford the rent any more.
I told her she had to give one months notice.
She said she didn’t have any money.
I said I could take it out of the deposit.
One week later I met her at the property, she had left a broken bed and some black bags in numerous rooms, other furniture had gone.
I told her she had to remove all her stuff before ending tenancy, which ended yesterday.
She text me to say she would meet me at the property at 7pm, but didn’t turn up. She is not answering her phone or texts.
I have posted letter to give 24 hours of my intention to gain access.
What do I do next? She still has the keys.
Can I gain access tomorrow and change the locks?
Any advice welcome please.
