Good Morning, I am the owner of an apartment in Portugal.

Customer Question
Good Morning, I am the owner...
Good Morning,

I am the owner of an apartment in Portugal. I am living overseas in Saudi Arabia.

I used the services of Remax Property to rent my property long-term. New tenants moved in on 26th December and signed a one year lease. However, they broke the term and decided to move out at the end of February. They had given me a one month security deposit which I was advised to keep hold off by Remax, since the tenants had broken the lease. However, the tenants said if I am keeping the lease, they will stay in the apartment for one more month to the end of March.

The only key I have to the property is with the tenants as Remax did not think to get a spare key cut. The tenants are not answering their phone and do not answer the door when Remax tries to contact them.

I just wonder where I stand legally. The lease is in Portuguese and my Lawyer in Portugal has not come back to me with any advice, despite contacting her a few weeks ago. She says even if they had a key and wanted to enter the property, they could not do so legally, and I would have to do this myself with the police present. If need be, I will fly to Portugal and this is what I will do.

Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks
