Hi. Would like to ask you guys.

Current tenant already failed to pay rental for 2 consecutive months and has outstanding utility bills. So I asked him to move out and surrender the keys but seems he never reply my messages and my calls.

Question is will it be wrong for me to enter forcefully into my house. He changed the padlock, so I have to hire someone to break open.

Or should I lodged report to the police station first. There's no tenancy agreement.

Has anyone ever experienced this situation before. Seems the guy is ignorant and staying in the house without feeling guilty.

The law is more biased to tenant. Not much you can do legally than asking them to move out. If you forcefully enter, they could sue you.

Legally you need to issue notice of demand.

Grey methods are plenty but you need to take risk and maybe at wrong side of law.

no tenancy agreement means Tenant is at the losing side as the property belongs to Landlord, last time my sis unit kena, we forcefully enter when there no one around, throw Tenant belongings which is not valuable out, report police about this suspicious figure(tenant) might gain entry on your unit even without agreement , stick beside your front gate, and cut the access cards Tenant holding+ inform the management body of the property, share security guards the print out photos of your tenant and prevent them from gaining entry, share their faces on fb to make sure surrounding landlords beware of renting out property to the tenant and inform about this case in property owner group of your condo , change lock and lastly confiscate those item which is valuable and considered as your unit furnishing item , in my case is plasma tv, sofa ,wardrobes, air conds, fridge,washing machine and etc rclxm9.gif Our unit rented basic to this Tenant, when they failed to fulfill payment, my unit suddenly become full furnish and we re-rent at higher rental few days after cleaning up, until now no more issue biggrin.gif

Thanx for all the advises given. I highly appreciate your helps.

What irritates me the most is the attitude of the tenant who refused to answer my messages and calls which I think indicates his intention of avoiding paying the rental and to stay for free.

Nevertheless I will lodge the police report as the tenant is considered as trespassing the property.

No tenancy agreements then you could do what you want more easily already haha

You could just change the pad lock, knobs, cut the electricity and water as well. If you want to be more mean move out all the furnitures if those are yours. Leave him with an empty house then report police for some stranger barged into your house.

This is actually a great idea. I wonder what kind of protection owners are lacking if a tenancy agreement was not signed.
