We have a tenant who is failing to respond to letters/tel calls and is in rent arrears without Rent Guarantee cover. We are planning to send a Section 8 notice on grounds of arrears.

We have visited and although there has been no answer the balcony door was open and we are sure they are still occupying the property.
We do not hold keys for the property and we have essential maintenance repairs to carry out.

Can we give the due 24hrs notice for reasonable access and if necessary change locks to gain access, giving clear instruction that tenant can collect new keys from us ( ie not locking them out)?
