HiThank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer. I will try to help with this. Please RATE my answer OK SERVICE or above.What type of contract is she on?
No contract. .She moved in with her parents 1932 .She as no brothers or sisters Lived in this property on her own since Mid 1950.
I'm really sorry but thats really bad news.I'm afraid she is a regulated tenant and unfortunately you have almost no prospect of achieving your reasonable goal.You cannot force access with a regulated tenant.You cannot evict her while she is paying the rent unfortunately.If she will not agree to the repairs then I am really sorry to say that the only time they can be done is when she dies.I'm really sorry but theres' just nothing positive I can say. Regulated tenancies are incredibly bad deals for landlords.Sorry thats probably not the answer you wanted but it is the position that you have and I have a duty to give you truthful and accurate information even though its not what I want to say.Hope this helps. Please rate my answer OK SERVICE or above and I can answer your related questions.
