We purchased a converted property at auction 15 years ago. One flat was occupied with a tenant on an AST, and a low rent. The property was barely habitable then, and we assumed the tenant would move on, and we could refurbish. That has not happened.
The property has solid walls with no insulation, no roof insulation, single glazed, bare brick walls in parts (blown plaster, not a chosen look!). Very old wiring, bathroom, kitchen etc. We have asked the tenant to leave, but she refuses. It is also difficult to gain any access (we have no keys).
We know we will have to go down the Section 21 route, but what is the position in April when we do not have a valid EICR, waiting for the notice period and a court date, whilst the tenant remains in the property?
