    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.

            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?

                As a landlord what approach do you take to replacing white goods in your rental properties?
                Do you buy cheapest brands and then dispose of them when they go wrong as it is pricey to repair?
                Or do you go for a better brand and hope for longevity?

                I've never been able to get a fridge repaired, they only have one working system and when it breaks it's time for a new fridge, so I buy the cheapest one that fits with a name I've heard of.

                Washing machines can be repaired, so I pay more for one that has...

                mandm
                This is an interesting one, got me into a spin.
                Tenants signed AST but decided to leave after 6 months and 3 days (problem with moving) using the break clause in the AST. I protected the deposit using DPS (Insured) and returned the deposit minus deductions when the moved out.
                I served the...

                That would be pointless.

                The tenant would have to sue to get their own money back.
                Apart from the waste of the court and tenant's time, there would be little or no compensation because the tenant would suffer no loss to compensate them for (loss of interest?).

                Your right that the penalty claim is the law and it's your right to claim it.

                Unfortunately however you won't receive much sympathy on here,as most of us recognise that most of the breaches have been made by inexperienced landlords and not through any intention to rip you off.

                The legislation has been in place for a decade and has been revisited at least twice (and tweaked each time).
                The deposit schemes have fairly clear guides about what needs to be done and how and when to do it.

                Given the tenant(s) the Prescribed Information is part of the process of...

                It discourages landlords from taking a deposit at all, and instead making it up with higher rent. This discriminates against tenants staying for a long time.

                I think that is what is happening to o/p.



                It's all a lot of nonsense. Tenant could always sue if landlord...

                I buy the cheapest machine I can source. It is usually a Hotpoint or Indesit. And they all come out of the same factory. Some of them last for years. I've just replaced a Hotpoint WD after 11 years with a new Indesit one. I try and avoid the ones with the digital display and too many fancy options as...

                What’s evident from responses in this thread that equal emphasis was given to deposit protected within time frame and T were informed in a prescribed manner, some going as far as getting the T to sign the acknowledgement!
                I am really flabbergasted to read some of these emphasis, surely the point...
