Lee Locking went to go to the flat after renting it out for the previous 5 years and will hardly consider what he found, WalesOnline studies. Among the piles of garbage had been cans, bottles, garments, rotting meals and even cat poo.
The newspaper photographer who visited mentioned they’d by no means been anyplace as unhealthy in twenty years of working within the trade. Lee claims the tenant even mentioned he may maintain the deposit to be able to cowl the mess, however he mentioned he feels let down by the letting brokers who managed the property, and claims they need to not have allowed the flat to get as unhealthy because it has.
Lee, 56, is now confronted with the unenviable job of attempting to kind of the Swansea property and do away with round 4 tonnes of garbage left behind. Lee mentioned: “Every single room is a state. I can’t even go in without wanting to shower immediately after.
“When I first went to the property, I’d taken the canine with me. I opened the door and the scent simply hit me. I took one take a look at the mess up the steps and closed the door and put the canine again within the automotive, as a result of there was no approach I used to be letting the canine are available.

Every room within the property is piled excessive with mess. The kitchen consists of jars of rotting meals, a litter tray which is piled excessive with faeces, and empty cartons of milk.
In one of many different rooms, the ground just isn’t seen, coated in bin luggage, takeaway containers, Amazon bins and garments. The bathtub tub is filled with cat faeces and is accompanied by a disgusting bathroom.
Lee mentioned: “It’ll easily cost me a few thousand, I’ll need to replace all the carpets, the kitchen, the bathroom. I’ve been told there is at least three to four tonnes of rubbish to clear. I’m at breaking point with it.”
