A DISABLED tenant has described the last three years of his life as a living nightmare after careless builders made a series of blunders in his home.
Frustrated Terry Nicholson, 59, of Hawthorne Grove, Kingsbury, had a number of bodged repairs carried out in his Brent Housing Partnership (BHP) bungalow in 2005 and they have still not been rectified.
Building contractors Eugena, were employed by BHP to refit the former decorators kitchen but left a trail of destruction that has left him on the point of a breakdown.
"So many things are wrong here and I am irate about of the state of the work which was carried out," he said.
"It has been an absolute nightmare - the kitchen sink overflow runs off the draining board and into a cupboard, the back door is badly fitted and a draft comes through, the boiler leaks and there is no extractor fan.
"I also had a nasty fall and twisted my spine in 2005 after tripping on a badly fitted metal carpet divider in the doorway."
Mr Nicholson, who suffers from asthma, osteoporosis, a heart condition and walks with a stick, says he has become depressed over the ongoing saga and is now in the process if suing BHP for negligence.
The grandfather added: "Since those builders have come it has turned my whole life around and they have totally ruined the place. Every room has something wrong with it.
"Once a surveyor came to look at the problems and suggested I opened a window when cooking or showering - the insults never stop.
"The builders also smashed a decanter and glass which was given to me as a 25th anniversary present from my parents, who have recently died."
Mr Nicholson, who has lived in the house for 25 years has enlisted the help of MP Barry Gardiner to help fight his corner.
The Labour politician said: "Quite honestly Mr Nicholson has been badly treated and his problems should have been sorted out a long time ago.
