Received a council repair order a while back after a complaint from tenant to the council. The repair works are still ongoing however, in the meantime we have put the property up for sale. A potential buyer is willing to buy the property as seen and the tenant is due to move out in 3 weeks. Is it alright to advise the council of this new development with the potential buyer carrying on with the works? The council did state in their letter notifying of the works that a fine could be issued if the repair works are not carried out within the stipulated time.
The stipulated time agreed expires soon. Should it be extended in the light of this development?
