I have a protected tenant and “Southend’s Private Sector Housing Enforcement Office” are trying to get me to install fixed heating.
My feeling is that this was not a requirement when the “Protected tenancy” was agreed some 30 years ago and it did not form part of the original contract. Contract Law states that they can not change the terms without the agreement of both parties.
Much the same as when the seat-belt law was introduced the Gov’t couldn’t force cars manufactured before 1965 to fit seat-belts.
The property did meet all the requirements of the “Protected Tenancy” at the time it was entered into and the Gov’t are refusing to allow that contract to come to an end.
If they wish to change the contract a new agreement should be entered into and therefore the limited payments under the “Protected Tenancy Terms” should be scrapped.
Your thoughts please, should I take them on?
