    Depends on the problem (if they are waiting for parts to fix something it could take that long..). - not trying to defend them.

    I've heard from several other people that getting HAs to fix things can be very hard work...


    (No offence but..) you have reported the problem, ? confirmed in writing, kept a copy?>? What does their complaints procedure say you should do if dissatisfied & have you done it??

    Do you have a social worker who might be able to "encourage" them?? Or as you mentioned Wednesday to Monday (& it now being Friday..) do I conclude it is now fixed??

    Cheers!

      they are changing a bathroom to a wet room knew of my disability from the outset (hence the wet room) there not waiting for anything the bits are piled up in the bathroom (flooring etc) cant report it (they have gone home to sit in their nice houses with bathrooms till monday morning) there complaints procedure exits but is very long winded i thought it was part of human rights law to have bathing facilities?

        Who is "they"?? - the HA or a contractor used by the HA..

        In your shoes I'd 'phone the emergency number (I assume HA has one..) (unless you can get through to anyone in HO now) and explain the position & request a fix.

Ive no idea how to use the shower safely or even if i can use it i had a hospital appointment today returned home looks like they have done nothing, they told me thursday the floor needs 2 hrs to dry so it cant be a quick fix.. ive a dodgy leg hence my disability, last bathed it tuesday they ripped the bath out wednesday assumed today it would be done as they advised 2 to 3 days now nothings happening till monday it would seem is this legal???

            Converting a bathroom to a wet room properly can take 1-2 wks.
            You have 'washing' facilities, its called a kitchen sink!

              How long would be acceptable for someone without a disability?

                Hi There,

                I am planning to move out of a shared rental property in March. Foxtons, the agency managing the property want to charge me a £300 "Change of Occupancy" administration fee as we have not reached the full term of the tenancy. I realise that the fee covers both me leaving...

                Your information is severely deficient,
                Of course a move out inspection can be chargedeven with no move in report.
                You accepted LA fees by proceeding with Application.
                Deposit ADR cannot be used to contest Agency fees.

                HI - our boiler broke yesterday - our landlord is currently waiting for a quote for a new boiler - however one of the problems we have is that she lives abroad. It consequently means she's able to speak to people in the uk about any sort of business matter for 3 hours in the afternoon. I'm wondering...

                I live in the US at the moment, 7 hours behind the UK, yes its difficult BUT when my boiler broke I had someone out within 2 days, one thing she should have in place is a boiler cover or she should have tradesmen lined up who she trusts so if something goes wrong she can get in touch with them immediately,...

                Hi - I attended court a few weeks ago, we used several grounds in the section 8, the mandatory one being the rent arrears, they didnt put a defence in, show up or pay so the judge just asked for proof I had served the section 8 (proof of postage receipts from the PO) and an up to date rent statement...
