Our Section 21 expired on Monday but there was no sign of the Tenant at Check out. We have been trying to track her down through her Social Worker and the KHT Homeless Team who were trying to rehouse her but they have said she had been declined for help due to previous trouble.

Yesterday we were made aware by neighbors that the front and back door were wide open and there was evidence of a flood in the kitchen. We entered the house to investigate and the water was from a ripped out Washing Machine and there was quite a lot of other malicious damage. At this point we called the Police and they have logged it and given us a Crime Number and we are talking to our insurance.

We were told by the Police to make the property secure so we have boarded up the kicked in back door and changed and added new locks to the Front door. We have put a note on the door , should the tenant Return, that there is a set of keys at our relatives house up the road. Who won't let her near it until they have called the Police.

There is still quite alot of her stuff in the house which we intended to store for her should she come back screaming for it.

How long do we have to keep her stuff for before we can sell/dump it?

We used the RLA AST version 0908.
