Duty of care question
08/10/2010 5:40 pm
I have a slight problem that I can't get an answer to. I searched the net and came across this site. Someone here may be able to help or point me in the right direction.
I rent a LA first floor flat. It is old and not well maintained. My electricity fuse box/meter and isolator switch are situated on the ground floor and are accessible to anyone who gains admittance to the flats. On many occasions it has been turned off, usually when we are out. I put up security cameras as a last resort. After complaints I requested permission from my housing officer who reluctantly agreed. However under pressure from a particular family I have had to remove the camera with the proviso that the entrance doors are to be kept closed at all times. The doors are now being left open which leaves my electricity supply vulnerable once more. What rights, if any, do I have and what responsibility, if any, has the council to protect my supply?
I am at my wits end and would be grateful for any help or advice
