What is an overgrown or untidy property?
An overgrown or untidy property is a property that may have become overgrown with vegetation or is in a condition where it has become a public health and safety risk. For example, the property might be attracting vermin like rats and mice.
Ideas about whether a property appears overgrown or untidy can vastly differ from person to person. A property that is considered unsightly or untidy may not necessarily be a health or safety risk, and the assessment of such property will be made by an Inspector or Officer acting reasonably.
