Unwanted tenant – can I turn of electricity and gas?Make Text Bigger
I have a tenant who has been served a section 21 at end October ’16 (contract expired 31/12/16) but still refuses to budge.
My landlord Gas Certificate (CP12) expires shortly.
Obviously without a landlords gas certificate, if the boiler is continued to be used, I’m in deep trouble if anything were to happen (CO poisoning etc)
But this tenant is several months behind with rent with no expectation of any change.
Can I protect myself by disconnecting the electrical connection – making the boiler unusable, no hot water, no central heating – may just prompt some movement.
Or should I have the gas supply interrupted at meter?
Or will I become open to prosecution for not maintaining the property?
