My tenant complains that there is sewerage smell in the flat ((which is conversion flat above a shop). The flat has a share waste pipe with another flat and a shop. The other flat tenants are not complaning and have been living there for 4 years. I dont know if they have different expectations but the fact that they are not moving should speak for itself. My tenant is now moving out and he agreed for a letting agent to do viewings but doesn't answer his phone calls to confirm viewings. What can be done in this case?

I have no deposit from him as it was a private agreement so I dont even know if the flat will be left as it was rented out (it was professionally cleaned before his move). I noticed that a table and a couple of chairs disappeared but he never mentioned it to me.
