    S21 expired, tenant's belonging still there but no tenant

    Tenant should be leaving my property in a matter of days. However, I don't believe he has even bothered looking for alternative accommodation. That said, I think it is possible that he might get temporary lodgings at a friend's, but clearly he's not going to be able to arrange to move all his possessions by the date of the expiry of s.21 and I can see him asking if he can leave some items behind until he can make alternative arrangements.

    If he has gone but leaves any of his property with me I'm assuming that still means I would need a court order for possession even? I'm guessing every last item needs to be gone before I can change the locks? Even if he tells me he has moved out, I presume I can't put anything left behind outside for him (in a safe place but outside the front door)?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    To be safe you need to get a surrender document done, witnessed by a 3rd party(To be sure).
    And you storing his items is a differant matter, and upto you and him to make an arrangement.
    If any items are left in the P, don't touch them, as only a balliff can remove stuff, after you get a court order.

    If you going for the third party, try a lawyer or local council housing.

      Bailiffs clear a house?
      Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

        Surrender document? Is there special wording for this and, if so, what is it? Am thinking I could have this ready and waiting when I see the tenant, just in case.

        Also, could this be signed the day after the s21 expires, or does it have to be before?

          As said above, try to talk to him but it appears he has already started to pull up the drawbridge !!! Be prepared for no rent once you tell him you are selling and if this idiot govt extend the ban again then bank on a least a year to get the property back (without rent).

          Hiya. Can anyone give me any advice please? We have a rental property on a shorthold tenancy. Tenant has always been regular as clockwork with the rent - funded by a forces pension he receives. I would say that he is not a very stable personality either. We didn't get the rent in April. My husband...

          Do this...... they sound awful and the exact type of people to take advantage of their elderly grandmother thus '' doing what they like '', its a common problem when young half-wits take advantage of an older relative. Difficult to deal with though, i doubt the Police will be interested, maybe the councils...

          Well as part of my landlords insurance i have alternative accommodation cover......... this will house the tenant should this exact thing happen, do you have such insurance ? Also why would the tenant have insurance for your property to be uninhabitable ? To be honest you are lucky they have served...

          There was a landslide and my Tenant had to be evacuated. They cannot return because access to the property is not safe.
          They had been reasonably okay Tenants, but as soon as this event occured they have treated me like the enemy! Everything I have advised appears to have been treated with suspicion...

          £900 deposit and the Letting Agent requested the whole deposit as the cleaning and redecorating to fix non wear & tear damage was estimated at approx £4000 and also they stole / took 2 x fridge freezers. Independent inventory on moving in and moving out backed all this yet the TDS awarded £700!...

          What's everyone's experiences with the DPS dispute service. Did you get what you claimed? Did you have good evidence to back it up?
          Thank you....

          Have any evictions ever gone ahead since cv19?

          how long is the backlog now? Are bailiffs actually working?

          what happens if tenants say they have symptoms and are shielding?
