  1. Hi, We're renting privately at the moment and our boiler broke on the 18th of January 2019. We informed the estate agent who got an engineer out on Monday 21st January 2019. He informed them and our landlady that the boiler needed replacing and subsequently gave them a quote to do the work. We were then informed on Friday 25th January that our landlady wanted another quote done, so it took her 3-4 days to decide she wanted another quote, this doesn't seem reasonable to me? Surely she should just get a few quotes done as soon as she knew the boiler needed replacing. This second quote was done on Tuesday 29th January and as yet we have received no update about when the work to replace the boiler will begin, which is all I have been asking for as I know it'll take several days to replace but we're now heading into the third week without a boiler in the middle of winter, with a 2 year old child, and I really don't know what else I can do. I've asked for a rent reduction as we've not been able to stay at the property but I've not even had any response back for that, even when I've asked the estate agent to chase the landlady about it. This is the second time in 2 years that this has happened, the first time we had to move out of the property for about a week as it was the middle of winter. It just feels like trying to get blood from a stone when I have to chase the estate agent all the time. The landlady hasn't been in touch once to let us know what's going on.. We've been here for 3.5 years and always paid our rent on time (£915 per month), caused no problems and this is the thanks we get. Luckily we're moving out in a month so I think she is delaying it because of that? Good luck to her trying to rent out the property with no boiler then..
