  • Access required to recover belongings


    I am an ex-tenant of a privately let property.
    We left some things behind in the house after vacating it at the end of the tenancy. Is it legally possible for me to gain access to the property to recover my belongings?
    There are now new tenants living in the property and the letting agents are refusing access.
    What channels would we need to go through? Any advice welcome.

    Thanks, Andrea

    Did you leave things behind deliberately, because you couldn't carry everything, or accidentally, because you forgot something was in a cupboard, the loft, or in a secret compartment under the floor?

    I saw the same thing discussed on another forum - moneysavingexpert.co.uk (you can add the www.) but can't recall the conclusion reached, I'm afraid. You might want to search there.
