LETTER: How can we be charged for fly tipping?

As a reporter of recent fly tipping at Kennedy Court I exercise my right to reply to the recent letter on this subject, and emails that I am aware of.

The letter indicates that Circle may charge tenants/residents for clearing fly tipping from their courtyard. Circle have not made the courtyards secure from outside incursion, nor have they erected CCTV to gain photographic evidence of the perpetrator.

So I ask which law of the land allows landlords to charge tenants/residents for clearing fly tipping from their land without evidence that tenants/residents are responsible?

I understand that after a complaint was made that Circle workers clearing a void property left items in the courtyard, the voids team themselves were asked/allowed to investigate. How is this ethical?
