A tenant (local to us but not one of ours) has been advised that she has to vacate to enable “massive repairs”.
I do not currently have details of what these massive repairs entail, but the suspicion is that they are actually improvements being labelled as repairs by the landlord as a way of attempting to circumvent the current virus-related restrictions on eviction.
Obviously, if the works concerned are of a safety-related nature then there may be no option but if not what are the rules here?
Can a landlord require a tenant to vacate for renovation work, or are they duty-bound to hold fire until the current emergency is over and the regulations are relaxed again?
The tenant concerned is an NHS key worker single mum with two kids.
