Possession Order - Shared House - Tenant still there!
I let a shared house with 4 lockable bedrooms with a shared kitchen and lounge. All tenants are on individaul AST contracts. I have obtained a possession order against one of the tentants for non-payment of rent. This has now expired (1 week ago.
I have been told by one of the other tenants that the tenant with the court order, has packed some things into bags, but is still using the house facilities - they are not sure if she is sleeping there.
I have given notice to the household that I will be visiting on Friday to inspect the house.
How should I proceed?
If the tenant is not in the property can I change the locks?
If she still has possessions there do I need to use court baliffs to 'evict her'?
