    Property dangerous but workmen refused entry

    A conservatory attached to a property is in a dangerous condition (sorry, I don't know how bad, its not mine). The landlord wants to demolish it to make it safe but the tenant (already served with an S21) is refusing entry to workmen. What is the position, the workmen feel sufficiently intimidated not to want to force the matter but the landlord is worried about possible consequences.

    As long as there have been repeated and documented efforts to gain access, then I would say that the landlord has shown due care, and that the tenant would have to take on responsibility himself were anything to happen. Go to court to gain access basically, and write a letter to the tenant stating that you cannot be held responsible for any injury if access is not granted. Do you know why the tenant is refusing access?

    Just my opinion

            • Erroneous Change Of Occupancy Fee
              Sonofahod
              Hi There,

              I am planning to move out of a shared rental property in March. Foxtons, the agency managing the property want to charge me a £300 "Change of Occupancy" administration fee as we have not reached the full term of the tenancy. I realise that the fee covers both me leaving...

              Your information is severely deficient,
              Of course a move out inspection can be chargedeven with no move in report.
              You accepted LA fees by proceeding with Application.
              Deposit ADR cannot be used to contest Agency fees.

              andy967
              HI - our boiler broke yesterday - our landlord is currently waiting for a quote for a new boiler - however one of the problems we have is that she lives abroad. It consequently means she's able to speak to people in the uk about any sort of business matter for 3 hours in the afternoon. I'm wondering...

              I live in the US at the moment, 7 hours behind the UK, yes its difficult BUT when my boiler broke I had someone out within 2 days, one thing she should have in place is a boiler cover or she should have tradesmen lined up who she trusts so if something goes wrong she can get in touch with them immediately,...

              Hi - I attended court a few weeks ago, we used several grounds in the section 8, the mandatory one being the rent arrears, they didnt put a defence in, show up or pay so the judge just asked for proof I had served the section 8 (proof of postage receipts from the PO) and an up to date rent statement...
