Hole in the floor

A Glasgow tenant was forced to report her landlord after he failed to address the emergence of a hole in the floor of her flat.

The tenant, Amanda Cairns contacted Glasgow City Council's Building Control after she began to fear for her safety.

She has accused the landlord, Sanjay Cauleechurn, of not dealing with her concern that the floor is falling away in the £465-a-month rental flat, saying - "There was water underneath and dampness. That is why the whole flooring has fallen in because it was wet all round it. The crack has got bigger and made the hole in the floor bigger."

Mr Cauleechurn did not respond to the council's calls to address the situation, so are now in the middle of assessing the full impact of the disrepair, having put in eight wall props to stabilise the rental property. They are considering issuing a Dangerous Buildings Notice to have the matter rectified.
