Council won't remove household goods from landing, and tenant being unable to go outside. Any advice
My friend has been offered a new home and he needs to get rid of some household goods. He has mental health problems and is classed as disabled. He lives in a tower block and can only leave the stuff on the landing as he is that I'll he can't take it outside. He has been told by Birmingham city council that they won't remove stuff from the landings and if he can't do it he will have to pay someone private to do it. He told them he is to ill to do it and I feel that it's discrimination surely they cater for the disabled. Anyone got any advice please
