    Tennant final handover.

    My tennant is near the end of her notice to quit etc she had not paid rent for 4 months but she is leaving in two weeks so I do not have to go down the eviction route( solicitor been handling all this) On her final day I do not want to be there as she has sent me threatening texts and has a violent brother who has been convicted of assault and gbh. I want to know can I pay someone to do the handover for me are there companies that do this? I don’t want her to just waltz off as that brings up the whole abandonment issue etc
    Many Thanks

    Only 2 n's in tenant.

    Just ask her to put keys back through letter-perfect. No need for any meeting. Just do check--out inventory & photos a day or so later.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      Thanks for the spelling lesson, lol😀
      everything I have read on line says that just because they post the keys through the letterbox it doesn’t fully cover you if they then try to make a claim for unlawful eviction. My solicitor has said to fully cover myself it would be better if she signs a deed of surrender but I don’t want to deal with her myself.
      This is a oneoff rental for my deceased fathers property which would have sat empty during the probate process, the tenant(😀) was a friend of my sister ( not now) who got it at half what we could have rented it for did not pay a deposit as we were happy to help her out and not have it sit empty, well that all bit us on the a** as she has been a nightmare. The tenancy agreement notices to quit etc were all done correctly. Hopefully she will go as she said and we can be done with the whole situation.
      I take my hat off to landlords.....never again😳

        Ask the solicitor to arrange for someone to receive the keys, make sure she leaves.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).
