I would like your advice as have just received a letter from Environmental health and housing officer of hart council. The tenant has been in property since 2009 and was inspected by members of housing virtually every year with out any problems. However this person went in saying that tenants have complained about damp, which they have not told me about. He has listed a number of items that need doing including putting in extractor fan in bathroom, trickle vents on windows, floor tiles in hallway are damaged and they may contain some form of asbestos. Now this has never been a problem before so I cannot understand why this is asked for now. Has there been a change in the law or something that I am not aware of? They have given me 4 weeks to do this work.
I have been on holiday and have just returned but the letter is dated the 21st January.

Can you please advise what i should do?
