Can you advise on the following situation please?
A tenant has been served a section 21 notice on 7th July so the two months expired 6th Sept.
I have text correspondence with tenant who is saying he doesn’t want to move out and it appears he has changed the lock on his flat which is in a block. The block and all flats in the block are owned and managed by us as a company and we feel that it is a safety issue not to have access to this flat.
We are about to apply to the courts for an eviction but can we gain access to the flat without his permission?
