Access denied - Protection from Eviction Act 1977
I have served a Section 8 notice on my tenant, initially on grounds 10 & 11, but now amended to ground 8 as he has stopped paying rent completely. I've initiated proceedings through PCOL and have a Court Hearing confirmed for 19/06/08 - hoping this will give mandatory possession.
He is in a shared house with other tenants but each with their own ASTA. I wish to do viewings in his room for potential tenants as allowed by the ASTA.
He is denying access and locking his room quoting the Protection From Eviction Act 1977.
Any advice on my rights?
