ALMO evicts two over gas checks
An arm’s-length management organisation has evicted two tenants for failing to allow access to their homes for gas checks.
Six Town Housing obtained possession orders from Bury County Court against Rebecca Lord, 22, of Salmesbury House, Ramsbottom, and Alan Glossop, 55, of Coronation Gardens, Radcliffe.
Both had failed to allow access to their properties despite letters, visits, and a notice of intention to seek possession being served.
A spokesperson for the ALMO said: ‘We have a legal duty to undertake annual gas safety inspections, and we will not deviate from that duty. These inspections are necessary to ensure the safety of the tenant and their neighbours.
‘In all cases where exhaustive attempts to gain access to carry out the inspection has failed we will seek possession of the property.’
