we urgently need to put up scaffolding on our Listed building for repairs. The scaffold needs to be stabilised to made it safe; the usual method in this situation is to insert a horizontal support inside through the open window tied in to the outside poles. This has never caused a problem previously with other tenants as we have ensured that although the window has to remain slightly open, we have filled the gap with foam material so that there is no draught. Tenants have understood that the work needs to be done for the good of the building. However, this tenant is extremely awkward. The work is unlikely to take long if we can start while the weather is still fine. In addition to the sitting room with the window in question, he has a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. What is our position ? Can he refuse to allow us to go ahead ?
