I have a problem tenant, and I would like some advice on the best and most effective method to remove him from the property
He has an assured shorthold tenancy (as issued by the guild) with a statutory period of 3 Months and one day from 25th March 2016 to 26th June 2016
The property is a HMO with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities, although his room does also have a private en-suite toilet.
As part of the management function of the property I regularly clean down the kitchen worktops, and other areas, any tenants items left out (Crockery, cooking equiptment, small appliances, washing up, etc.) are all moved down to an area of a table at the end of the kitchen where they can be easily reclaimed and put away by the tenants. all tenants have their own private numbered cupboards in the kitchen.
He has taken exception to this action which I consider essential for the effective management of the house, and to prevent the deterioration of hygiene and health and safety in the property.
He has sent me highly abusive and threating e-mails about not moving things he leaves out.
I consider him to be “unstable”, and am at present trying to keep a low profile, so as not to aggravate him further, although, this obviously cannot go on for too long, as I do have to manage and clean the property.
He is at present up to date with his rent, and as far as I know has not caused any damage to the property (Certainly not in the common areas)
What would you suggest as my most effective course of action to get him removed as soon as possible?
