Hello Diana my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether there was any form of tenancy agreement?
Dear Alex, thank you for assisting.. Yes, there must have been a Tenancy Agreement. I've just contacting my ex husband now, to get this Tenancy Agreement (the terms were written up with my ex husband and this landlord) and thus what the Terms were.. However my family did not sign anything to agree to clear this property upon our father's death.
The Landlord can't just change the locks. I assume your father paid up to the end of the month or something.
As such if that is the case then your father is still the tenant and the property is paid for until that period.
The Landlord can't just change the locks
He must get a Court order.
So you have use and access of the property until the end of the bulling period.
What you need to do is get a Court order demanding the delivery up and access to the goods.
You can apply using form N1
The court will list the matter for hearing and decide whether to grant the order for delivery up and acess
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks Alex, I'm emailing from Singapore (time difference is +8hrs to UK).. So I don't think we can get answers today, but this is informative and useful as I suspected the landlord cannot just change the locks. However I don't know as of this moment what Tenancy Agreement he signed
Yes, I assume he paid monthly so again assume he had until the end of the month.
I hope this helps.
Thanks so much... I'll follow up accordingly on this..
