Some people find it difficult to look after themselves and their home and their property may become untidy and dirty. This may not be serious enough for the Enforcement team to become involved - although other agencies such as Social Services or others may be able to offer support.
In some cases the situation may deteriorate to a level where there are personal hygiene issues, smells, accumulations of waste, possibly infestations of rats, mice, flies and there is a real risk to the health of the occupier and others such as neighbours. If you are aware of someone who is living like this who may require our assistance please contact us using the details at the end of this page.
For further information, please contact Dudley Council Plus.
