Access denied for viewing during Notice.

Three questions, a 6m AST, Notice given by tenant 1/6/21.

  1. tenant’s father says I must only deal with him, not even cc the AST signatory, she has confirmed. But as the contract is with her should I continue to deal with him (Guarantor only) and not even cc her?
  2. She complained of damp to EH at time of giving Notice, not to me. I’ve had it surveyed, no defects, but copious evidence of drying wet towels on radiators no ventilation etc etc. Not reported to me. Now refuses access to measure / check despite access with 24h Notice in AST.
  3. now he refuses access for viewings and photographs, despite specifically stated in AST in final month.

So am I entitled to expect TDS to allow deposit retention and guarantor to pay for a month’s delay, i.e. rent, council tax and utilities costs?

He writes: “Her tenancy comes to an end in less than two weeks now.. As any works required in dealing with the damp problem (sic) can not be carried out until after xxxx moves out I see no need for any visit at this time. Therefore access is denied.

I am not prepared to allow any further photos to be taken of personal property so permission is also denied.

As discussed with (agent) earlier today, they were unaware that permission had not been sort (sic) or granted (sic) for the taking of the photos & video on 10th July 2021.(sic) They were extremely apologetic for any distress caused to xxxx They agreed to remove one photo & the video and I agreed to allow the other photo's to be used. We agreed that these were sufficient for marketing the property so see no reason why any further photo's are required.

Despite my request & xxxxx written request, for her not to be contacted you still persist. As this is now bordering on harassment I am obliged to make one last request for her wishes to be respected. Should you wish to ignore this request it will be dealt with in a more formal manner.”
