Thank you. As you are aware, C1 and C2 are as bad as it gets and if someone is injured or killed, as a result of this, now that you have knowledge of it, then you could potentially be culpable.
If your tenant has not moved in, I advise caution.
You need to show the tenant the report and recommend that they do not move in. Tell them that it’s their decision as to whether they do or not but you require them to sign a disclaimer, that they are aware of the risks.
I will tell you now that signing the disclaimer does not absolve you of negligence for personal injury or death.
The agent refuses to release the keys (to be honest I think that’s a wise move) you cannot compel them to do so.
Looking at the work that is required, that’s one days work., 2 at the outside.
There is nothing to stop the tenant moving it but it’s a risk.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
Please note that my answer is based strictly on the information that you have given me. If you have not given me all the information, then my answer may be incomplete or wrong.
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
If you still need any points clarifying, I will be happy to reply because the thread does not close.
