Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 3 weeks ago 69
Hello all, Looking for advice on how to best get my tenant out of my property so I can treat rising damp, paint it and sell it.
My tenant has rented my terraced house in St Helens for the last 5 years now with many ups and downs, rent arrears, catching up, having moved a big dog in and 20 fish tanks to breed fish which has contributed to the damp.
The damp needs treating and he insists I need to rehouse him for a month which is impossible with the amount of stuff he has.
I have put the property up for sale with the tenant wishing to stay and sell to another landlord …. he has now stopped paying the rent due to illness.
He has nowhere to go and now says the damp is bad for his health.
