Hello

I had tenants who have just left my property and handed the keys in to our letting agents. They have not left a forwarding address and they still owe us three months rent.

They have left behind a lot of stuff, mostly worthless, but including a large sofa in good condition and we have new tenants due in on Saturday.

I assume we can dispose of the rubbish but I don't know what I can do with the sofa as I have nowhere to store it and no realistic expectation that the tenants would pay for storage. Can I legally sell the sofa? If I can, can I use the proceeds against the rent they owe without a court order? Can I just dump the sofa anyway as abandoned?
