    Tenant offered to move out next week

    Hi all,

    So successful possession order obtained

    Tenant is still in the property after possession date which was Wednesday

    Has offered to leave and return the keys next week.

    Anything I need to bear in mind at all? Guessing agency would require him to signed something saying hes given back the keys

    I'd rather this route than wait a while for bailiffs

    He could of course be lying to drag it out a bit longer.


      Book the bailiffs... If he goes you can always cancel them.


        S*d what the agency want, I'm assuming you are landlord- so you tell agent what to do, not the other way round.: Inform tenant you will give him a signed-by-both-of-you surrender deed document AFTER he has exited property, all his stuff gone, keys returned, to you. Then change locks.

        But agreed, book bailiffs..
        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...



          Sorry all

          Forgot to mention we booked the bailiffs yesterday.

          So we'll cancel them if he does go

          Thanks All!!
