Have just followed a thread from a few years ago about an “abandonment notice”. I found out last week that one of my tenants has been sent to jail for two months. He is a tenant in receipt of housing benefit. The council have suggested that I put an abandonment notice on his door, stating that if he doesn’t return within a week of the notice (which he obviously won’t!), then I am within my right to change the locks and store his belongings for his collection.
I certainly don’t take what the council tell me as gospel and the article I’ve read proves why I shouldn’t!
Anyway, I’m just looking to find out what can be done in this situation as the tenant has been particularly problematic from the start of his tenancy only seven weeks ago and I thought this could be a good way to get rid of him.
I also haven’t received any rent from him!
All advice appreciated.
