Halfway to eviction, tenant says he will quit - what should I do?
I have not cancelled the court proceedings as the tenant has lied to me a number of times already and I don't trust him. Besides, no mention was made of his rent arrears or my court costs and these are crucial to me. The solicitor says I can go ahead with the court hearing even if he does move out. And besides, I have a guarantor so I am not too worried about this - or should I be?
My main concern is that I thought it was usual for the landlord or a lettings agent to tour the property on moving-out day with the tenant and agree on any damage etc. This is obviously not going to be possible. What should I do? Can me and my husband go alone and rely on photos of any damage or do we need to find a third party to go in to the property with us or before us, to check it???
Many thanks for any advice you can give me.
