  1. Hello, Just an update and if anyone could give any advice it would be much appreciated I requested a subject access request from the letting agent and it shows the landlord admitting that he cannot afford the repairs and delaying the replacement of the boiler. Furthermore when I requested the landlords details the letting agent wrote to the landlord stating that they legally have to provide this information but they are trying to delay in order to avoid giving out the information It paints the picture of what I suspected which is the landlord and
  2. Thanks for the useful links. What would the consensus be on my options taking things further? 1. Wait until end of tenancy, then do subject access request and make representations against the Landlord 2. Write letter before action now asking for compensation for time, stress and inconvenience of having a defective boiler for 6 months? Thanks
  3. Hi Ericsbrother, I was under the impression that the subject access request would show that the LL and LA have been speaking and that the LL was aware of the problems and still chose to do nothing. As it concerns me, then it would be my data. Either way I have nothing to lose by applying for that data. Unfortunately I didn't realise that I was able to go to the council regarding these issues until fairly recently. It was British Gas who came out every time. The landlord had boiler cover in his name for the boiler. The boiler broke down initially and he sent a repair man
  4. As I have 6 years to make a claim would it be better to wait until the end of the tenancy to then start proceedings? I will not be renewing the tenancy and I was concerned there may be some retaliation or problems with my deposit if I made it clear that I was going to start proceedings against the Landlord. Also I have thought about making a subject access request to the letting agent so I can get copies of all the communication between the landlord and agent regarding myself and the property. Again I was going to do this at the end of the tenancy to gather evidence to support m
  5. Thank you. Ive had a skim through this legislation before and it would seem that this is relevant to me: 11 Repairing obligations in short leases. (1)In a lease to which this section applies (as to which, see sections 13 and 14) there is implied a covenant by the lessor— (a)to keep in repair the structure and exterior of the dwelling-house (including drains, gutters and external pipes), (b)to keep in repair and proper working order the installations in the dwelling-house for the supply of water, gas and electricity and for sanitation (including basins, sinks, baths a
  6. There is nothing I can find in the T&Cs which states that the letting agent is responsible for these issues. It all states "The Landlord"
  7. Well originally I wasn't really wanting to sue anyone, as I was able to manage by showering at the gym and the weather wasn't too cold. I have only wanted to take things further as I've had to use so much annual leave sitting in waiting for tradesmen and my family have been inconvenienced that if I am due compensation I would really want it. The letting agent and landlord have been equally incompetent. The letting agent have fobbed me off. I raised a complaint with how they were dealing with things and they haven't followed things up. They even illegally refused to provide the land
  8. Hello Andy, thanks for replying so fast. I have found these relevant terms from the contract Statutory Repairing Obligations To comply with the obligations to repair the property as set out in sections 11 to 16 of the Landlord and Tenant Act. These sections impose on the landlord to repair and keep in good order: 1. Structure of the property and exterior 2. Certain installations for the supply of water, electricity and gas Other repairs 1. To keep in repair and proper working order all mechanical and electrical items belonging to the lan

  10. Hello, I would appreciate your wisdom and advice. I moved into a property in August last year in which I have had a number of issues. The main one has been the boiler which did not produce continuous hot water. This has been repaired 4 times over the course of 6 months and the issue has come back every time within weeks. The landlord obtained a boiler contract with a gas company who advised every time that the boiler was obsolete and should be replaced, however this advice was never taken The property is rented through a letting agent who have just dragged t
