Can I take action against the council for security door breach?Make Text Bigger
I am a council leaseholder and the secure door to our block of flats has not been working for around 6 weeks. This was reported to Hackney Council mid November, but they have not fixed it and are saying now it will not be done before Christmas.
We have since had homeless people sleeping in the hallway, people spray painting walls in the communal areas, people coming in off the street and taking drugs in the middle of the night causing disturbances among other things.
Do I have any legal rights to force the council to fix the door before Christmas (as lots of people will be away and I’m worried about security during this time) and would I be able to dispute any service charges relating to the clean up resulting from these anti-social incidents that have occurred?
