I signed a tennancy with local council early October 2015.

Customer Question

I signed a tennancy with local council early October 2015. At viewing i asked if artex could be removed. I was told no, they dont remove it. I could do it myself. i intended to do this once id moved in with my 3 children. I tjen found out it contai ed asbestos. I went back to council and was told no it doesnt, then later the same day i received a call to say i shouldnt touch it as it does. Since receiving the keys ive been in cleaning and pulling nails out of the walls and old hooks etc. Resulting in tje old artex coming away and being covered in dust from the walls. The council have now had a professional company in to remove artexed walls, but left ceilings. Needless to say we are a long way off moving in. Can i take action against the council. As not only have they put my health at risk, also my 3,6 and 11 yrs old. My email address is***@******.***
