If there is a fire at your rented property, rendering it uninhabitable, and it is let to tenants, the landlord should, if possible, re-house the tenants while repairs are being carried out to make it habitable again. However, if suitable alternative accommodation cannot be found for the tenants, the Local Authority will have a duty to re-house them they would be in a homeless situation with a priority need. If the repairs are completed before the end of the fixed term, you should allow the tenants back into the property if they wish to return. If the tenancy is Statutory Periodic, it will depend on the wording of the tenancy agreement whether you let them back in or not.
