My tenant was arrested last week and is still in custody. She is 1 month into a new 6 month AST.
I understand she was involved in some kind of drug deal (on behalf of her boyfriend) – not in my property. The day after being arrested the police came back to search the flat – obviously took the door off rather than calling me so now sorting that! The police won’t even acknowledge they have been in – ‘data protection sir’
I use the standard RLA ASTs. If she is convicted of a drugs offence do I have any grounds to serve her notice and end the tenancy?
She will not be 2 months in arrears for another 6 weeks – if that happens I assume I can apply for a Section 8 possession.
I look forward to any advice from fellow landlords who have experienced this.
