Peaceable Possession - can you can't you?
Further investigation has shown that :
1. After date of possession the tenant no longer has rights and is in effect a squatter.
2. If the tenant is not in the property you can go into that property and change the locks - a "peaceable possession".
3. Should the tenant return and damage the property you can call the police and he/she will be arrested for criminal damage.
So, in short, yes I can go with my N325 to the court at 9am on the morning after the possesion date and "try" to get the bailif to speak to me to organise a quick execution of Warrant.
Surely if I know the tenant is out of the property, I can go and change the locks?
why wouldn't I wish to go down this route? I'm not concerned about the tenant , in fact he should be a little more concerned about me, but I'm playing by the rules. I just appreciate others opinions on here.
