Hi.
My tenant moved into my apartment on 5/12. Yesterday I was called by the CDI to open the front door or the 10 officers at the property would knock it down. Turns out the tenant is wanted by them for serious offences (fraud I think but they couldn't tell me much).
The tenant moved in on a 6 month AST (the one supplied by this site). Could you please advise under what circumstances I could end the tenancy earlier?
He is due to pay rent on 5/1 - not sure that he will. There was talk amongst the officers of trying to prevent him leaving the country, and if they catch him I guess his accounts will be frozen as I think he has come by his money fraudulently. They removed several valuable prints from the apartment as "police evidence".

I'd appreciate any advice on how to mitigate any losses here, and how to ensure this doesn't drag on into a long and costly affair.

many thanks,
