I know this is an issue that every landlord encounters at some point, unfortunately, it’s now my turn to deal with this.
I have a flat in a purpose-built block of 6, containing 5 rentals and 1 owner-occupied all nicely kept, one of the owner-occupiers organises the maintenance and us landlords pay our share all very civilised.
Well, it used to be, one of the flats was sold and is now owner-occupied, however, her boyfriend is causing some issues, claiming to have planning permission to install a driveway for his campervan, being hostile to anyone in the block and then installing external power sockets onto the gable end of the flats running a cable upstairs to his girlfriends flat.
The planning consent is total nonsense, the power sockets criminal damage, not to mention the safety concerns he doesn’t own the property, but he is causing mayhem with his hostile attitude and brazen disregard for normal living.
The question is, how do we get him to behave reasonably and get back to our previous humdrum normality?
On the positive front, myself the other owner and my fellow landlords are all united that this has to stop. I welcome the sage advice of the 118 members.
