How can I tell if my tenant has left?
I do not have a key for the property as the key I had does not fit, so he may have changed the locks at some point. As he owes me over 14 weeks rent and has been abusive when we have tried to collect it I want to regain possession as quickly as possible. Neighbours have said they will call me if they hear him return, but everyone thinks he has left.
What are my options? Ideally I would like to wait a few days and if there is still no sign of him then go and change the locks. Am I able to do this or do I have to go to court? If so how does he receive the court notices as I am fairly certain he is not living there and I have no means of contacting him?
Thank you for your help.
