I am an assured or sitting tenant without a fixed rent since 1989. Although the rent has always been extremely reasonable.
The landlord died recently and the letting agents are asking to ‘inspect’ the property for 5-10 minutes. I have always maintained the property where I can myself, but there is chronic damp that worsens my asthma if I don’t use a dehumidifier everyday.
There are also holes in the floor and crumbling walls. I believe renovation would cost more than £10,000.
I have put off the inspection as I don’t know why they want to inspect.
How do I approach them?
Can they put up the rent to market rates even though the damp is unhealthy?
Can they evict me on the grounds of renovation without having me back?
I would be agreeable to a pay out for me to leave, but I have no idea how to talk to them.
Many thanks for any advice.
