smart locks that a landlord can disable thus making it impossible to lock the door. having no means of securing their possessions, the tenant may be more likely to move on.

If your tenant owns a few basic hand tools then they are capable of locking the door.

A sensible tenant with a landlord like this would have already changed the locks to keep the landlord out!

If the property is let furnished, it's a good way to end up with an unfurnished property ...

If the tenant is not engaging into society enough to get what they need then they might have given up. In this case securing their possessional wealth might not be high on their minds.

Tenants have all of the rights now it's true. You can't physically toss them out for not paying and you have to store their stuff for them for three months... but nobody said you had to leave either the front or back doors attached to your own piece of property.

Come to think of it, the removable windows, patio sliding door, and heat vent on the roof are still yours to do with as you wish.

How many inspections am I allowed to insist on performing every month again? Pretty sure I can figure out how to jury rig a wrench to shut off that water main in the front yard, etc.

One rather nasty landlord in England wished to rid himself of a sitting tenant in an upper-storey appartment. He sent some men to remove the staircase.

Talk first, maybe more than a couple of times then start dismantling.

Reason before force... and if reason doesn't work then the dismantling begins until reason once again holds sway.

Hey, now, don't hold back ... repressing your feelings is a Bad Thing. Just go right ahead and let everyone know what you think, no need to beat about the bush ...
