Advice for Landlords on Property Abandonment


Contact Percy, Hughes & Roberts

Regained Possession of Your Property but the Tenant's Belongings Remain?

If you think that you are free to dispose of your property as you see fit, you would be wrong and it could prove to be very costly.

Many landlords of residential buildings are often faced with this problem. Generally, as the landlord, you have no right to sell or otherwise dispose of any goods that have been left as the goods do not belong to the landlord. Should you dispose of the former tenant's goods and they return for them at a later date, you may face a compensation claim for wrongful interference of goods.

As with all areas of Landlord and Tenant Law, it is vital that property owners take care and make sure that they behave in a fashion which does not leave them open to future claims.

If this scenario sounds all too familiar, please contact our Landlord and Tenant specialist Tony Parkins.
