Scaffolding outside my rental property, this has been here for many months even after being told it was going to be taken down, there is now graffiti some way up the wall which gets the nerves going of someone being able to break into one of the higher windows as the graffiti is just below it, is this legal? It’s not being used for anything it’s just being used as storage!!

Hello Ryan, 

I think you have a valid point about health and safety concerns. Your landlord should realise they are jeopardising their own assets by doing so. Why don’t you contact them again and voice your concerns ?

If they don’t budge, you may contact your local council and ask what rights you have for requesting the unused scaffolding to be taken down and away. As above, pivot your complaint around increased possibility of theft and vandalism.
