    Assisted Living/ CPAP Machine

    I have been told by the manager of the assisted living accommodation where I reside that if I do not use the CPAP Machine (which I can not stand) that the NHS has supplied me with for my sleep apnea he will in other words evict me, ability housing (a housing association) is my landlord which the manager does not belong to.

    What I would like to know is under the present law of England can the manager give me such an ultimatum, I would appreciate any advice?

    What tenancy/license type do you have please? (V unlikely to be AST or AT). What does tenancy/license agreement state about following medical advice please?

    How long have you lived their please?
    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...

      How would he know? Just tell him you are, surely?
      To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

        Is he insisting you use the CPAP for your benefit or the benefit of other residents? As in when you don’t use it your snoring is so horrendous it disturbs other people?

          As above, is this for the benefit of the other residents ?

            I have a friend who has to use a CPAP machine. If he doesn't use it you can hear him snoring outside in the garden

            Maybe the landlord is thinking of the wellbeing of other residents, and isn't so much saying you have to use your CPAP, but more classing it as causing nuisance to other residents if you don't.

              Just another form of ASB i guess, if you replace the snoring with playing loud music.........

                I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .
                I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
                I do not intend to live at the property
                Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?

                You can thank the tenant with a dog I did let to in the past for now being reluctant to let to other people with dogs and probably cats too.

                The fact your income comes for 100% benefits isn’t a hard no though as long as you are able to pass affordability....

                i have just read an interesting summary of all that is proposed in the EG (Estates Gazette). As drafted it effectively brings back a form of rent control as tenants will have the right to go to First Tier Tribunal to challenge any rent increases which must be proposed by section 13 notices.

                You’re not though are you? You’re getting these people to rent the property because you’ll be living overseas. The property will cease to be your only if main home.

                Maybe you’ll get away with pretending these people are lodgers and these people will move out the property when you...

                Sounds like the power has gone to their heads Can't you, or rather the tenants, have some fun? Well placed boobie traps or a fierce dog perhaps?

                Just had letter from London Borough of ****** saying they will be inspecting my house at some time in the next 28 days to ensure licence compliance. No further notice will be given and tenants are expected to grant access to all areas, windows to be left open for air supply, and doors all left open...

                You would be creating an issue for yourself, you want to be able to evict a T (for whatever reason) which do not have the same rights as a T on an AST, the problem would be that you would have 2 T's who would have evidence etc, that you never lived there while they lived there...... When someone is...

                It crosses my mind that if you install something that doesn't comply with regulations - eg a rope flush against the wall - then you might be more likely to be opening yourself up to a claim than if you'd left the stairs as they were when you bought the house....
