Trash in front of window from private property

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I have recently moved into a new property.

The bedroom window is facing a bunch of commercial crates which have trash on top of them.

The trash is maybe two metres away from the window, making it impossible for the window to be open (I am also afraid of rats being there).


The other windows of the property are facing a communal, enclosed area, which is making it difficult for the property to be properly ventilated.

I have already raised this issue with my estate agency and they are trying do to something about it

(to be honest, if I leave everything to them, this issue won't be solved until my tenancy is finished, and that is more than one year away).


I am asking for advice, or how could I approach this issue.


I have spoken to my council and, since they do not deal in private property, there is nothing they can do, at least this is what they have told me.


The property with the trash is not owned by my landlord.

It is an open space, with big crates, closed off by a fence.

If I could, I would climb those crates and remove the trash myself but I cannot.

I also cannot climb out the window to reach the trash, as the window is too small.


At times, I see a car in that property but I have never seen the driver.

I left a note in the car's window explaining the issue and giving my number.

This was around a week ago and nobody came back to me.

look up on land registry who owns the property

then get in contact with your local environmental heath dept.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow
