    Broken networking intallation

    I have just moved into a new flat, and it uses optic fibre networking only, so e.g. talktalk will not service us since they require a phone line which cannot be installed. Instead we have a 'GTU' (Gateway Terminal Unit) which isn't operational, which I'm assuming is the landlords responsibility to get fixed.
    Problem is, the landlord often takes weeks to respond, and we don't want to wait that long without having internet., so would like to get an engineer out ourselves. Would the landlord still be obliged to pay for an engineer in this case?

    You can't assume it is the landlord's responsibility; you need to look at the tenancy agreement.

    Many people use 4G these days.


      No unless an internet supply of particular type is specified in the contract. What needs to be "fixed"?

        If you always paid your rent six month in advance would the LL have to give six months notice to leave at end of a fixed period?

        I do intend on making contact of course but I want to hear it from someone else in case they try to pull a fast one.

        We live in a rented house, we've been there many years.
        The rent is paid weekly via a standing order setup by myself.

        The contract we signed (about 10...

        Sadly that post shows your negative attitude towards certain groups. I worked for decades with many people in social housing. My experiential evidence is that the majority are decent people who have had some unexpected misfortune or come from challenging backgrounds.

        Hi all,

        Moved into this rental property last July.
        Tenancy states no pets without landlords written permission.

        A couple of months after I contacted Landlord about getting a kitten, he responded saying he would get back to me and never did.

        I'm a good tenant,...

        The evidence for that statement would be much appreciated.

        Bearing in mind we are not talking about social status we are talking about "social housing tenants". Do have have research that shows that social housing tenants do not trash properties at a higher rate that non social...

        I keep dogs and cats (and they are the cause of my frequent use of rugs and replacement of carpets).

        However, nothing compares to the damage capacity of a kitten.
        They are full of energy, have sharp teeth and claws, endless curiosity and little continence.

        You will need to be able to show that the guarantor is the one who, at this point, owes you the debt.
        The tenant has incurred the debt, and the guarantor has (depending on what their guarantor deed says) agreed to pay these debts if they don't.

        Depending on the wording of the guarantee...

        by MisterB
        I haven't used the MCOL process before and having read through it, I am required to undertake 'pre action', which seems a fair process to follow. I have drafted the following (details removed of course) - does anyone consider it unsuitable ?? I have tried to include all the relevant points without making...
