Although he has been in arrears with his rent in the past he is up to date at present. The big problem is that he has let the flat become uninhabitable! There is decaying food piled everywhere, piles of dirty clothes and human excrement smeared up the wall. The flat is one of a block of 6 and the smell is having an effect to the other flats.
He has been warned to clean it up verbally and in writing. I guess that the next move is to serve a section 8 on him.
Is this correct and how much time do we have to give him?
All advise will be gratefully appreciated.
