How many days do you advise chattels notice to be displayed for. The woman left 6 months ago but her daughter is living there now. We think the furniture belongs to the mother & she has not let us know otherwise?

A solicitor advised us under these circumstances 7 days display of notice is enough? He said 7 days is fine if the tenancy agreement is silent. Would you agree? The tenancy agreement for the daughter was the RLA agreement & it is silent on the issue of furniture removal. Mel

It sounds as if you are trying to remove belongings before you have a possession order. If my assumption is correct then you would be sued for damages.

You have to wait until the bailiffs have got your property back. Then google TORTS(INTERFERENCE WITH GOODS) ACT and follow the advice on a factsheet that comes up

Thanks Dave.
It sounds as if Dave assumed that we are trying to remove belongings off a non-paying tenant. What we are asking is having followed all the correct procedures, via court and bailiffs etc, then does anyone have a direct link to a chattels notice? We tried Dave's link and it wasn't helpful as the TORTS ACT covers all sorts of issues, not just our particular concern. Can anyone guide us with where we can find a chattels notice and how long we have to display it for?
Many thanks Mel Rose
