I have 2 beds, chest of draws plus wardrobe and fridge left by tenant. She left at expiry of possession order last week. She has told me by text message she has moved. Housing benefit have written to me telling me she has moved and her guarantor texted me to say she has moved and cleared the house. I have not applied to bailiffs.

I have not had keys returned yet. I have failed to get her to write me a note saying she has left nothing of value. Guarantor has promised to get me keys.

Assuming I get keys what should I do with belongings?

I have 2014 vintage RLA tenancy agreement saying I can get rid of belongings left at end of tenancy.

Do I still need to store them for a month? She owes no money.

Her guarantor lives 2 miles away. Could I drop the things off outside his house?
