Abandonment/ illegal eviction question.
On June 11 the T will be 2 months full rent arrears, the Benefit Agency formally advised us her HB stopped from 28th April. We will use the s8 notice to reclaim the flat legally via court. We will not relet until the property legally ours again.
In the interim, we've changed locks a put up a small notice saying keys can be collected from solicitor office. We/our contractors will soon regularly be going into the property to do works as the place is inhabitable.
Should we change the utility bills over to us as we will be using electric and water to do the work, would this be viewed as illegal eviction.
What have others done when in this situation.
