Hi there Please could you help me, I own 3 1/2 acres of land with 3 stables and charge the tenants £50.00 a week rent. They are in arrears with rent to around £1800.00 for which I am taking them to the small claims court. I also issued them with two months notice to vacate the stables and fields, this expired on the 13th April 2014. I went down to the stables on the 14th April and although the 2 horses had been moved they had left a horsebox and horse gear at the stables. I rang them and after much abuse they agreed to have all the equipment off site and post the keys through my post box by the following Sunday 20th April. On the Monday 21st April finding that they had not posted the keys through my post box, I again went down to the field, I found that they had taken the horsebox but there was still other equipment left there, and no keys had been left there. I rang them on Tuesday, and a lady answered the phone saying she was the tenants mother and that they had gone away on holiday and she could not help me as she was old. I then followed this telephone call with an e-mail to the tenants saying as follows Linda and Kerry Following my telephone conversation with Steve and Linda where we agreed that all the items of yours that you wanted would be removed from the stable by Sunday 20th April. When I went down to the stables on Monday the 21st April I saw that the horse box had been removed although there are other items I believe belong to you, that are still on site. By leaving them on site are you saying that you no longer require these items and that I can arrange for the disposal of the said items. You also agreed to return the keys on Sunday 20th April, I have checked my mailbox and no keys have been delivered there, I have also checked down the stables, and there are no keys either there. Could I please collect the keys from either of you or could you please arrange for the delivery of the keys immediately to my home address. Could you please reply within the next 48 hours as I wish to make arrangements to clear the stables Faye and Gary Could I remove the items from the stables (dispose) although they have not returned the key. I need to begin the clear up process as the stables have not been mucked out and everywhere is in a bit of a state. Thank you in anticipation of any help you can provide Kind regards [email protected]
From what we can see there is only a few wheel barrows but they have changed the lock on the garage and fitted their own padlock so we cannot see what is in the there. We have not taken photo's of what we can see but I can do that tomorrow
Thanks everso for your help Jo, I will remove the lock and do a list of items tomorrow, e-mail this list to them with the 30 option to collect. Your help has been invaluable
