I am trying to establish the responsibilities of tenants and the landlords or management agency in private rented properties in general when it comes to waste management.
Landlords more often than not pay a fortune to clear away rubbish abandoned or left by previous tenants as they leave a property at the end of a tenancy or are evicted. I am aware that local authorities have the duty of care by law to take away general rubbish from domestic properties. Why is it that many tenants believe that because they pay council tax, it is not their responsibility to deal with the waste they generate and in most cases landlord pay the price especially in cases of evictions or poor relationships.
Both tenants and landlords do have a responsibility. Does it work in reality?
The debate is to establish a responsibility, identify gaps in tenancy agreements and develop a framework for a better understanding of how we can create an environmental friendly business and a good livelihood for all .Thanks for your opinion.
