    Benefits T vacated but left belongings/rubbish

    Hello all

    i got the problem with my HB tenant . my tenant she doesn't live at the property since tenancy agreement expired . she left all the rubbish at the garden got the phone call from environmental health and i had moved all of it . And she left her belonging at the property . As i got confirm from Housing Benefit that she doesn't claim benefit at the property anymore. Yesterday i got phone call her want her belonging . today i had arrange her to collect her belonging and i left her for move her for 3 hr. when i come back to the property she goes and her belonging still at the property. she doesn't take anything out from the property at all . i have their parent contact but they don't want to get get involve . So i can't contact her at all as she always change her number .My question is

    - Can i move her belonging out from the property and move on or do i have to apply to the court as i had give her S21 and was expired on 19 May .

    or what should i do next ?

    thank you for you help

    On what date did the Tenancy Agreement's fixed term expire? Did T move-out before or on that day? And does she still owe any rent?

      thank for quick reply

      Tenancy Agreement's fixed term expire on 19 Dec 09 . and she still owe the of 1300 pound . basically i give her S21 on 19 Dec 09 and that expire on 19 Feb but i found out later that S21 invalid so i give her another one on 19 March and and expire on 19 May . on March and April i got pay direct from HB but and they send the letter payment will be stop. As i call HB they said she doesn't live at the property anymore . while on this mess she doesn't live at the property at all . i would say she left before the tenancy expire . another thing i found out a lot of methadone bottle had left in the cupboard. what should i do the next ? as i feel very stressed with this mess from her .

      thank again .

        I think the NTQ may be your best option. The tenant could defeat it by returning to live there but that would at least enable you to get the rent payments reinstated. If they dont return, the tenancy will end. You can serve the notice at the property, but make sure its also sent to wherever the tenant...

        Your questions are too wide ranging for a forum. The answers would form a long article. Asking questions on here is not a substitute for reading. I suggest you join the NRLA and read all their guides and checklists....

        Thank you for all your knowledge!! I’ve been reading about part 36 - they haven’t said it’s part 36 and they haven’t explained the basis of their figure. Also they have only given 7 days not 21.
        I assume therefore it cannot be taken as part 36?
        I’ve read that part 36 cannot be...
