Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 2 weeks ago 69
My tenant has not paid any rent since Aug 15 and their AST expired on 31st October 2015. A Section 21 Notice was also provided to the Tenant in August to inform them that they must vacate the premises.
The tenant then decided not to vacate at the end of their tenancy and until today, when I went to the property to serve Court Papers for an Accelerated Possession Order, it was mine and my Letting Agent’s belief that they were still occupying the property.
However, it would appear that they have shipped out and according to my neighbour they haven’t been seen for around 4 weeks. The keys have not been returned, either to myself or the Letting Agency and therefore I am unsure where I stand in regards reclaiming possession of my property and also in regards recouping the monies owed in the Small Claims Court, given that he owes me in the region of £10k in unpaid rent??
Can anyone advise me please?
