I have been informed by local council that my tenants benfit has been suspended. I have tried to contact her by visiting property and via mobile and text but to no avail. I could see thru letter box masses of unopened mail behind the door. Being concerned I arranged for a friend to visit with me and we entered the propety. All furniture and possesions were still there but the house was a mess and stunk due to dog mess on carpets. Looking at postmarks on unopened mail, I guess no one had been there for about 1 month. I also found eletricity bills in two names other than my tenant! I took photos, changed the locks and then text her again to say what I had done and she should contact me if she wants access. I have heard nothing in 24 hours.

I served a Section 8 on this tenent in Jan 09.

I have absolutely no idea how to proceed so any help would be greatly appreciated.
