I have a postgraduate student tenant in an HMO with a total currently of four tenants (separate contracts, not a group) who repeatedly (and after specific e-mail requests not to do so) causes fire risks e.g.
blocking escape routes with his belongings,
leaving aerosols and gas canisters on south facing window sills, where they get hot in the sun
removing “In case of fire” information from communal area
I fear for his safety, that of the other tenants and of the family living in the adjoining house. I also fear that unless I take further action against him and he causes a fire, the insurance company might say that I should have taken action to evict him, as I was aware of the dangers he was posing. There is no specific clause in his contract relating to this problem that I can quote in a warning letter to him.
I have already increased my fire checks of the property from monthly to weekly. At almost every check, I find he has caused another fire risk.
Your advice would be much appreciated.
Thank you – G
