    End of lease Issue - rent arrears customers ordered items locked inside !

    Hi guys!
    I have been lurking on here for years but not i actually need the advice!

    I will try to some this up quickly and efficiently !

    We ran a wholesale shop in our high street, due to covid our cashflow had reached end game and we are being forced to close.
    However!

    The lease to our shop ended in January, the building its self is in a very bad condition, the heating never worked and had caused mould to cover the building, black mould.

    No end of lease notice was submitted as we were already in £5,000 rent arrears therefore already in breach.
    Our problem lies within, customers items are still present inside the building, however the landlord has wrapped bolts around the door so we are unable to access's and return customers goods.

    Inside the building we dont have anything of much value so we are not concerned for ourselves.

    Can he bolt the door like this considering covid rulings?
    Is he allowed to keep customers items, or will this be customer vs landlord - possible police issue?
    Has the act of bolting the door changed any finances due or notice required?

    thanks guys !
