Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

I served a S21 on my tenant. Since then, he has been on a mission to hurt me! He has now got a no win no fee solicitor who has sent me a letter of claim for disrepair.
The tenant has refused access to the flat for many months. Workmen have been turned away. I now have a solicitor to help with a s8 because of anti-social behaviour and the Police have issued a CPW, but he doesn’t care.
The solicitor agreed to send me the housing protocol (the protocol says he should have sent it without me having to ask). Anyway I sent every bit of evidence I had including 240 pages of messages. I assumed it had all been received. I realised on Wednesday this might not be the case.
I resent everything again. It is day 20 today, so I have to send my reply. My solicitor is away until next week, and I am on holiday.
I think he is not acting in the spirit of the protocol by refusing to allow me time to discuss with my solicitor before he sends a surveyor to the property on Tuesday at a cost of over £1000. I cannot appoint a joint surveyor because of coronavirus.
Can anyone offer me any guidance?
I am so stressed
