HJ Talks About Social Housing Podcast | Decanting and access for repairs

listen on spotify podcasts

In this 10-minute podcast, we consider best practice to obtain access for repairs and situations where you should be decanting tenants. What can you do when an aggrieved tenant refuses access to carry out an essential repair or refuses to move for substantial works to be undertaken?

To help you understand when you should consider decanting a tenant, and your rights if a tenant refuses access for repairs, Eleanor Walters and Michaela Smeaton, Solicitors in the Housing Management team discuss the legal position.
