A conservatory attached to a property is in a dangerous condition (sorry, I don't know how bad, its not mine). The landlord wants to demolish it to make it safe but the tenant (already served with an S21) is refusing entry to workmen. What is the position, the workmen feel sufficiently intimidated not to want to force the matter but the landlord is worried about possible consequences.

As long as there have been repeated and documented efforts to gain access, then I would say that the landlord has shown due care, and that the tenant would have to take on responsibility himself were anything to happen. Go to court to gain access basically, and write a letter to the tenant stating that you cannot be held responsible for any injury if access is not granted. Do you know why the tenant is refusing access?

Just my opinion :)
