I have a feeling she'll destroy the flat and my possessions (clothes, TV, sofas, furniture etc)
Am I able to change the locks when she leaves for work in the morning and prevent her re-entry to the flat?
She is not a legal tenant as I understand it
I've effectively already given her notice as we broke up towards the end of June and she has found somewhere she can move into on the 31st July so I agreed to let her stay til then. Does that change anything? That I've already given her notice but she's threatening to do the damage before / as she leaves?
So I could massively lose out here. It was a verbal threat. I can't prove she made it.
Even if I bring charges for criminal damage, she doesn't have the money to replace all the stuff she would destroy (including the flat)
What's the minimum notice I need to give if I want to bring her eviction date forward? Surely she's essentially a guest?
Ok so she's had 28 days notice (we agreed this on 21st June that she would move out). She then found a place to move and I kindly agreed to let her stay til 31st July as that's when she could move into the new place. Again, does that change anything?
