My house is split in 2 and last weekend I rented out the upstairs to what seemed like a nice couple. For various reasons I took a deposit initially, and the tenancy agreement and 1st months rent would be done a week later ( this weekend coming). Meantime, the previous landlord traced them to my address and told me they owe thousands,not just to him, but previous landlords too. They have been evicted, caused trouble, been threatening etc etc. How do I stand...there is no signed agreement, they have a receipt for the initial money, but not called a deposit. I live downstairs with my children, and I do not want these people in my house. Can I give them 1 weeks notice and then change the locks if they dont go? do they have squatters rights?
