Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Is it on the only means of escape?
You need to speak with the Council.
They will come round and assess the property to see whether it has suitable means of escape.
If the answer is no, then they can stop the Landlord renting and/or make him to improvements.
If the answer is yes, then sadly you are stuck with it.
But contact the Council - they can inspect the property.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
I see you have rated poor service, which effects my personal standing on the site.
I am only the messenger and can only tell you what the legal position is.
What else would you like to know and I would be delighted to assist?
