I have recently taken a tenant to court 26 Jan 2016, for non payment of rent, and we won, and he has 14 days to move out. He texted me on Fri 27 Jan, to say he had moved out that day and just left some bedding and food that he would collect the following day and he would leave the keys.
He has not done either. I have sent him a nice reminder, but got no response.
This is a room in a house i.e. an HMO,with 2 other tenants.
Can I give him 7 days notice to collect belongings and then change main door lock. I am happy to bag his bedding and keep it for him..
There is no deposit as we fell foul of the prescribed information, so he has had that back before we took him to court.
I know this is a bit of a grey area, But we have already spent a lot to get him out and can’t really afford to throw more good money after bad!
Is there a period of time that lapses that after the locks have been changed and no access from him it would automatically be surrendered.
