we issued notice to vacate about 4 months ago.
Tenants didnt vacate on the 22 sept and verbal agreement was made for the 27th Sept again they didnt vacate another verbal agreement was made to 2nd March and again havent vacated. they have said now the 4th however we have restumping and leveling booked in 8.30am on the 4th and they dont want to give the keys back until 4.30pm.
Customer
Tenants have signed a new lease at a new property approx weeks ago
Customer
On 1 March 2020 approx 98% of their belongings have been moved and they are no longer residing at the property
Customer
we have given written advise that we have contractors coming to quote and carry out works.
Customer
Problem is that we don't have a key to the property. Our realestate agent didnt get a copy of the key at time of leasing.
Customer
Can we change the locks (and provide them with the new key) so we have a "office copy" so we can access the property?
