Eric Champ is involved in a tenant's last stand battle with Renfrewshire Council, which wants to demolish the multi-storey block at Arkleston Court in Gallowhill, Paisley. The local authority yesterday began a court move to have the property repossessed in order to bring in the bulldozers.
The 53-year-old security officer is challenging the council's right to do that, claiming it will be in breach of his tenancy agreement if the ruling goes against him.
A sheriff has now been asked to give a judgment and after hearing evidence from both sides, with a decision to be given within 28 days.
Mr Champ has been the sole occupant of the block for several months.
