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

So finally after Covid-19 eased off, we got round to start the kitchen which was planned before. The contracted company couldn’t do all the work and agreed to be flexible with me finding a new builder for them to then fit the kitchen once the builder has done all preparation work.
The issues I faced to get to this point were countless with tenants hindering every step of the way. I even had contractors stating we don’t want to do the job because the tenants are going to too difficult after they visit to look for what needs doing.
Now tenants refusing to have the free-standing gas cooker I have chosen. They already got their say in the planning of the kitchen by being demanding.
On one hand, I really feel enough is enough from tenants. And the other hand, they are worth having, because they never miss rent payments
It has come up again that they are pulling out all tools on me and threatening to leave. Also informed me today that they have reported me to the local authority for not fulfilling my duty as a landlord.
I just can’t please them no matter what I try to do, something is always wrong. Apparently, the cooker is for a “single person” what I bought for them. They want a cooker with a bigger oven which I can’t fit in the place, but they can’t believe me and wanted a built-in cooker they chose.
Any thoughts on this so demanding and rudely behaving tenants who are causing me stress now.
