Questions & AnswersCategory: General QuestionsCan the council force me to change a heating sysytem
TIM Wilkens asked 2 years ago

I let a property to a single Mother with 3 kids who recieve housing benefit. The heating system is electric and not the cheapest to run so she has not used the heating and just heated the living room with a super sir,With the obvous condensation problems.
This has caused mould to grow all over the house and noe she has been to housing complaining that the house is not habitable because of the mould.
The council have inspected and said we need to clean the mold and also spend thousands on replacing the heating for one which is cheaper to run.
What I need to know is where do I stand if I refuse as the cost looks like being 8-10k which I just dont have.
