    If you give 24 hours notice of your intention to visit to inspect the condition of the property, you have a right to enter.
    The tenant can decline to allow you in, or lock you out (they have a right to exclude you that matches your right to enter).

    So you turn up when you say you will (presuming they haven't responded) with a witness, knock, make a lot of noise opening the door, shout hello anyone there for a while until you are sure you're a) dealing with an empty house or b) you and the witness can honestly say you believed you were and go in.
    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).


      Ok, thanks for that bit of information. Hopefully it looks like it won't come to this as I received a text back from the tenant stating a time that is ok for me to pick the keys up. I have a feeling they have already moved out and living else where and are just waiting for the date stated on the S21 notice to hand the keys back.
