  • tenant has left property how do I stand

    I have a tenant on a 12 month tenancy agreement with 8 months left to run.
    he has not paid any rent to me for 10 weeks but has claimed the payments from H Ben. ( I have informed the council about this)
    I have left various letters and have tried to contact by telephone.
    I went to the property yesterday and it is empty. I spoke to neighbours and noone has seen anyone at the house for more than 6 weeks.
    It is obvious that the tenant has done a runner.
    I have tried in vain to track him down.
    Can I just reclaim the property and change the locks? I really don't see the point of going through all the court procedures and costs when the tenant has cleared off away from the area.
    Any advice appreciated.

    I suggest you search the forum for abandonment threads. Be careful because this is the sort of situation that could lead to problems.
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg
