I have a tenant who I think has abandoned a flat that I let to her 9 months ago. She owes one months rent, due three weeks ago, with another month due on 20th of this month. I was planning to serve notice on her to quit on the 19th of this month as she has never been a good timely payer and recently has caused annoyance to neighbours with noise and noisy visitors.

The neighbours say that they saw her leave with three large suitcases last night and I have been unable to contact her today. At what point am I allowed to enter the flat and change the locks? Do I need to serve an abandonment notice and if so what is the procedure for doing this?

Thanks for any advice.
