We have a 3 bedroomed property that is currently being rented. The patio door from the living room into the garden has developed a fault and kept falling off its runner. We got our handy man to fit a piece of wood across to stop it from falling onto anyone.

The reason we have not had it replaced is due to the fact that over a period of 10 weeks the tennant became uncooperative and stopped paying his rent and answering phone calls etc.

Eventually we took him to court to evict him however he got legal aid and as we had made a slight error on the forms his solicitor advised that she could get the case thrown out so we decided to accept the offer of him paying the arrears off.

The tenant owed just under 1700 which is now down to 1000 we cant afford to replace the patio doors until the arrears are paid off.

The tenant says he has spoken to a fire officer and because the patio doors are blocked off it is a fire hazard.

The downstairs layout is the front door leads into the kitchen which also has a back door leading into the garden. From the kitchen there is a door that leads into the living room with the blocked off patio doors. There is a door that leads from the living room to the stairs.

I hope you can give me some advice
