Tenant has "vacated" the Property?
I served s.21 Notice correctly stating 01/12/08 as end of period. Tenant agreed to move out and I met tenant at property on 01/12/08 to take possession.
She asked for another two days to collect some of her items [one picture and some kids toys in the garden]. I agreed on the basis that I was only allowing her to come back and collect her goods. I changed locks and gave her new keys.
She did not collect her items on 03/12/08 or call or make contact with me re extending the date etc.
I did not want to leave property unsecure. I returned evening of 04/12/08 and changed locks again.
Tenant calls me today demanding access to collect her items.
1. Where do I stand regarding taking possession of the property? If tenant has "vacated", can I just change locks and regard tenant as having given up possession to me? Tenant has moved to another property.
2. Where do I stand re allowing tenant access for collecting items?
Any advice would be grately appreciated.
