There are several factors to consider. If you had a legally binding contract then you must abide its terms and conditions. Did they pay rent? Are you able to reasonably ascertain the persons whereabouts? Generally speaking I believe you will have to make reasonable efforts to contact them and give a reasonable period of time for them to remove their belongings but that isn't to say that you can't charge them that is if you had a contract with them.
