I had an EICR assessment in October, which stated the property required rewiring. Since then there have multiple failed attempts to get this work started and completed. The tenant had Covid-19 multiple times, then her boyfriend has had it, then a boyfriend’s relative bereavement, relative has changed (the boyfriend is not a tenant), then the work was started, and she refused to let them back in after the second day.
On the 27.12.20 she sent a cheery text saying you can now start the work and was rude, aggressive and intimidating when I said I couldn’t because the electrician was booked up.
The work finally continued on Tuesday and today she has denied access again. We have followed procedure with warnings which means she is on the final stage but has made it clear that it will cost us thousands to get her out. Any advice on how I proceed. The electrician has been really good but at the end of the day he has a business to run.
I have already had to pay extra costs when work was booked and not carried out. This is a common theme with the tenant, she reports issues/repairs which we respond to immediately and then refuses access.
