  1. Hazard perception test now features more weather conditions READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/hazard-perception-test-now-features-more-weather-conditions
  2. I rent a flat and the door to the balcony has never been in operation, I am concerned that it is a fire hazard and I would like an extra exit from the property in case the stair well is out of action for some reason. I have never bothered to ask the landlord about fixing it until now as I was sure he would refuse. Is there any legislation regarding safety regulations in rented property that may help to back me up when I do ask him? I am hoping he will be reasonable and see the fire risk but if he doesn't I would like to have some information to fight my case with. (My flat is in such a position that on the left hand side of the house all the windows open up to a steep drop as it's a first floor flat, but on the right hand side where the balcony is there is a bank and a wall that runs directly under the balcony that you can hop down onto safely in the event of a fire). Many thanks in advance! Blinky
  3. I've had a disagreement with my landlord over penetrative damp coming through a plug socket. Other than this issue there is little else I'm too bothered about with my tenancy. Please take a look at the below images. (If a mod couldn't edit the link to work after checking it that'd be great) hxxp://imgur.com/a/LAma8 I notified my landlord of this after discovering it in my new tenancy (who had already been notified by other tenants previously). I explained I felt it was a serious electrocution hazard and probably a fire hazard. My landlord put it in writing that due to good weather he was busy doing repairs on other houses that had broken fences/gutters. I disagreed with this and felt that despite this being ignored for sometime the presence of a young child meant this should be an emergency repair. Broken fences and gutters can't electrocute people, his priorities are wrong here right? Anyway, after 3 weeks of dilly dallying I eventually put my foot down and said if it were not addressed I would be calling the council. Someone came the next day but I was out (common area in shared house, allowed access without warning I think). All that has occurred is the faceplate being replaced with a flat one without plugs. My landlord tells me the electrician has stated that this is now safe and is ignoring my communication. I have a feeling he's telling me porkies and that this is in fact still dangerous and/or a fire hazard. What should I be doing in this situation? He has told me as a result of the back and forth of me trying to get him to do SOMETHING (prior to the council threat) that I am the worst tenant he has had of 100s in his 17 years as a landlord. I feel like I've been pretty reasonable and just wanted action on a dangerous hazard. I still feel like it's a fire hazard and further action should occur. What should I do here? What are my options? What do the experienced here think? If opinion is against me then fair enough, I'll put my hands up and admit fault and lack of reasonableness. I however feel like this should have been resolved in the kind of timescale that an owner-occupier would have prioritised it, and with a small child regularly in the house I feel like that's a hazard worthy of immediate repair. Yes? No? Right? Wrong? Thoughts. Thank you very much all.
