Tenant has passed on
Hi Guys, can you please help?
I had a tenant who refused to leave my property, I went to the family for help but the refused because they no dealt with her because he had become a drug user.
Anyway long story short this tenant this tenant passed on about 10 days back and no one has been at the property for over a week.
I bumped into her daughter yesterday who informed me they would be taking her belongings out but she stated it will be about 4 weeks!!
This tenant has been in arrears since january and there is no one on the tenancy agreement only her husband,, who left her 2 years ago.
So the question i wanted to ask is..
Do i have to wait 4 weeks for her daughter (who is not on tenancy agreement) to move her belongings or Can I say to her, you have 1 week for example and i am taking house back.
I want to show some remorse but think her daughter is taking the mickey, she knows we are not getting paid any rent and she wants us to wait upto 4 weeks!
Can i now legally go in because basically the house has been empty for over a week?
any helps would be much appreciated
