    Thanks Paul. I intended to march the guy over to Timpsons and let him pay for the copy himself.

    He never showed up though, and I have no reply to my phone message. Fishy, eh.

    Okay, well I have left a message on T's voicemail asking for permission to give the key to her husband.

    I'll keep you posted.

    I see. I didn't understand why you have agreed to give a person named on the tenancy agreement a key, but now do not want to because it has taken him too long to get to your house.
    Is there a reason you don't call him?

    Thanks guys. I won't hand keys over unless tenant comes over also.

    If he's not the tenant I would not give him anything until I have written authorization from the actual tenant.

    ... or whether he's been to Africa or not? I agree I don't think you should give him a key, without wifey's say-so at least. But sounds like you've already agreed to, and he's (maybe) on his way?

    Thanks Interlaken, that's a good idea.

    I'd be dubious.

    Ask wife to come to house as she is the tenant or at least speak to her on the phone and be sure it is her.

    Asked for key by husband

    Regular readers may remember my tenant who is always coming up with jobs for me, and chops up deer on her kitchen floor.

    This morning at 9.20 I got a phonecall from a UK mobile from my tenant's husband. (Although I insisted he be a licensee on the tenancy agreement, the wife was very insistent that he not be a tenant.)

    The guy said they had been travelling in Africa, and forgotten their key, and would I meet him at the property to let him in. I suggested that he come over to my house to collect one. (There is a key cutting place acoss the road here.)

    I have not seen anyone. It should only take at most 90 minutes to get here from Gatwick.

    Could this tale about travelling in Africa be a porky pie?
