Can I lock out my tenants who have refused to pay the rent?
/

In today’s episode, we look back at a discussion on tenancy law and whether a landlord can lock out his tenants when they fail to pay rent.

My wife and I worked very hard for many years, saving and denying ourselves. Eventually, we managed to construct fifty-one-roomed houses in Kangundo whose rent we depend on to support our children and grandchildren. Because I don’t like trouble, I vet my tenants very carefully. But in the past few months, none are paying. Everyone is crying corona, corona. I see other landlords locking the houses with a padlock, and then the tenant pays. I want to follow the law, so I am asking you this.

Can I lock their houses?
