I have a property and have an agent to manage. AST of 12 months was signed in May 2016. No deposit or rent had ever been collected. Knocked at the door for 10s of times, never had an answer. Seems like some activities inside the house but seen no one. Informed the police but being ignored as there is no proof of any illegal activities. Agent suggested for an eviction but I heard that it can cost a lot and very time consuming.
What are my options? I am desperate and have already lost 8 months worth of rents. What is the quickest, easiest and cheapest way to vacate the property? Anywhere I could make a claim? Any suggestion would be most welcomed. Many thanks.
