I have a tenant,who over the last few months was paying rent later and later until recently paid 14 days late(rent due on 5th but paid on 19th) and this was only when i rang to see what was up.
She then said she was moving but has not given any written notice and her tenancy does not end until 5-12-10.
I have told her in writing she must pay last month of rent until the 5 dec (even if she leaves ) and I will return her bond subject to property inspection on 4 dec.
she's now left and said to keep bond and she will pay the difference (but hasn't)and has left stuff and rubbish at the house.
I cannot get hold of her now as phone is dead and she still has set of keys.
Am I entitled to change the locks to stop her returning to property, because now there is no bond on property and she is still owing difference between bond and rent which I think is not going to be forthcoming.
Do you think court action is worthwhile if I can find her new address?

Thanks
