    Tenant won't get Covid test

    Tenant won't get Covid test, I know he is really sick.
    Is there anything I can do to force him to take a Covid test?

    Why do you want him to have a test? As long as he’s not going out what’s the issue

      You are landlord, agent, fellow tenant, neighbour, Matt Hancock?
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        No.
        And nor should you.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          To be blunt..... what does it have to do with you ? Are you his carer or do you have an LPA over him ? I gather you do not live with him given he is a tenant and not a lodger....... and for the record you cannot '' force '' him to take a test, that would be assault.

              If he did get a test and was positive, how would it help you? Just behave now as though he is infected.

                T may just have the flu, as others suggest, as long as they carry on paying your rent abide by their obligations, don't break the tenancy, they should have freedom to do what they like in their property (within the law). Is this a HMO?

                  Same as for anyone else if you know they are in danger. Contact social services, they are the professionals, that is what they are paid for.

                  Search social services for your local authority.
