TheWife said:Yes....have 5 other longterm landlord/residential contracts. 1 pretigious client, and a whole bunch of domestic clients.
I believ I have a duty of care to notify the HSE...as I very concerned and feel that the GAS / ELECTRICS should be inspected. May be wish to save as my last hand.
God, it can be such a cut throat business.
He really gives landlords a bad name. And I think it wont stop there......the same thing is going to happen to someone else too.
I would be very careful on this one,unless that is you did it straightaway. It could be seen (in court) that you knew your obligations, but failed to see them through. This could go against you if someone had been subsequently injured by a fault you were keeping back. This landlord could say he had employed you to fix any dangerous faults.
This guy must be a cowboy landlord, I would ask in the local builders/plumbers merchants(of the record) if they know of any other tradesmen who have had problems. If he does have "form" so to speak, it may well make him drop the issues or at least help your case.
Consider getting your solicitor to write and highlight the dangerous issues you mention, they are then documented and may safeguard you against any bogus claims by the landlords friends.
