I basically need to get the whole place re-done. Get fire alarms fitted get the kitchen up to standard. Need a new bath room done. Basically the whole place needs to be gutted to re-do.
It is not a case of blaming the tenant. What I need to do is to empty the property so I can get the work done. I cannot do any work if the property is not empty.
You can say it was neglect from me nothing to do with the tenant, although the tenant has not taken care of hygiene of the property, i.e the kitchen is not cleaned etc.
If after telling tenant that the property needs to bought upto standard (via written notification) what are my liabilities.
i have neglected previously
I had work done on the property about 2 years ago. Since when the it has become a state. Mainly due to tenant not looking after it. I also need to get the gas and electricty test re-done. I forgot to re-do them at last expiry, which was about 8 months ago.
no there is no suggestion that they are dangerous.
But if the council where to come and have a look will i be liable for anything as the certificates are not upto date
But I still need them to empty the property to get all the work done. Where do i stand in that respect as if there is any accident after I have given them notice and they dont leave can I be prosecuted or fined or claimed against for by the tenant?
