    Extraordinary. Who took the battery out, do you know?


      I think it's fair to say the landlord wouldn't be suing you for the rent if you moved out.
      What I would do is not pay rent, and pay the relative the money they lent me.
      Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong


        If you can show that one of the battery were indeed removed, that's a very serious criminal offense, I would think.

        Considering you and your family spent the night in hospital with CO poisoning, I would contact the police about that, and the EHO/Health and Safety Executive about the general CO issue.

        It's quite complicated because my house is on his farm. So the LL is around everyday, I don't really want to get on bad terms with him.
        In view of your story, I find it hard to believe that you are not already in more than bad terms with him!


          This is now a clear cut personal injury situation. You have a good case under negligence and breach of statutory duty. As well as a good case to immediately vacate and claim removal and temporary accomodation expenses.

          Consult a solicitor asap and gather as much evidence as you can, notes, photos, records, get the police to have a look and explain the history and hosp visit to EH.

          Take him for all he is worth!

          If it sounds like I know what I am talking about........I don't.


            Just like in Coronoation Street but with evil intent!

            OP, all the best for a speedy recovery. You are well out of that house. Hope you find a decent one soon.
