    Landlord sending builders that cancel, work 1 hour a day & damage property

    Hello Everyone

    Sorry for the long explanation and thank you in advance for any help.

    I moved into a property 1st of September when I originally agreed to let the property in was still half finished however I was assured it would be done do transferred my money across.

    When I moved in I was still in construction , I had no choice as was starting a new job in the following 2 days.

    Since then the builder the landlord has organised has cancelled 5 times so far, however the day he did arrive he explained he would get 5-6 jobs done and clean up after himself, I even provided him with a industrial vacuum.

    I returned the next day to find no jobs completed , on top of this the place was in an absolute reck and my bed had been used as a cutting board.

    The landlord expect me to keep up after the builder and the builder to work any time he wants and for any duration. I’m constantly cleaning up after him so I have a livable space.

    I propose a rent reduction which was declined.

    I have no idea what to do, is the landlord allowed to organise work like this? Do I have any rights in terms of a liveable space or working times for building.

    Thank you

    • Rental deposit
      Looking for advice , I signed a 12 month rental with my boyfriend , we each paid 900 pounds deposit to the deposit company . He moved out 6 months later to live with another woman, but continued to pay half the rent until the lease finished. I have messages from him saying he did not want his deposit...

      This was a joint T, when any remaining deposit should have been paid to 'lead T' for onward distribution.
      I might suggest ex b/f may like to sue me for his share of remaining deposit, if I did not want to reimburse him 900. quid.

      Can anybody help please. I own a flat that is fully managed by a letting agency I’ve dealt with for 12 years. I received a letter from a debt collection agency asking me to ring them. I phoned them today and have found out there is an outstanding bill (which has been sold to the debt collection agency)...

      Ask B Gas for copy of who signed signed the supply Contract & date.
      Supply B Gas with copy of T dated AST and meter readings.

    • necessary notices and permissions for a boiler relocation in a flat
      Hi all,

      I hope I chose the relevant forum to post my query to - please forgive me and correct me if I am wrong.

      My rental flat's (one of 22 'executive-style' flats in a 2-block development built in 1999) boiler stopped serving hot water to my tenants a week ago. I had a boiler...

      You are unlikely to get permission for a hole in the wall sooner than you can get a roofer to replace the roof vent.

      Thanks for the replies. The letting agent has said they absolutely did not put the bill in my name. It seems as if the previous tenant has put the bill in my name (from the tenancy agreement) including their arrears, which is why the bill is high for an empty flat for one month. Surely this is frau...

    • who is responsible for the broken fridge/freezer
      I moved in a flat last Tuesday. I found the fridge is not cool enough but the freezer works well. However, on Saturday the fridge/freezer didn't work. Foods in freezer began to thaw. The shelf in freezer is much warmer than the other part.

      I contacted with the agency and they said I should...

      If it is on the inventory and there is nothing to say that the T is responsible, then I would say it is the LL's responsibility.

      Personally I have only ever provided fridges and freezers on the basis that if they break, then the T repairs and the T can then take it away with them.

      Tassie Girl
      Hi All

      Our tenants were given notice and we went to court to regain possession. This has been granted by the County Court and she was supposed to leave ysterday. While I believe the tenants have moved out, I also believe there are still a few odd belongings there. At what point can I (or...
