Hi all, I am renting a flat in the back of a commercial property but have discovered over the holidays (via extreme noise) that the commercial premises are being converted to flats. Neither my landlord directly (the ommercial business) or the letting agent has told me anything and I am wondering what are my legal rights on the issue as my property is barely habitable due to the noise in the daytime, not to mention utilities such as my water have being switched off without my knowledge. Furthermore, I am pretty sure they would have known about this when renting to me only 8 weeks ago as they already have a new tenant, thus combined with this change of living environment that I signed up for and the fact I work late nights, surely I should have been given the right of informed choice! I have even emailed every member of the letting agency, expressing my disgust at not being told about work being done in the building I live in to which no-one has replied! Can I be compensated?/released from my contract-both?

Thanks in Advance

Contact EHO for on site inspection re noise etc

Are you given prior notice of interruption to supply of services.?

EHO may require LL to provide temp alt accom, provided you continue to pay rent.

Thank you for the input so far, I am onto the EHO they're not the most organised of people to say the least! They've recommended speaking to CAB to find out the legalities of changing the conditions that were agreed on the tenancy agreement-but as you can imagine it's very difficult to get an appointment with these guys. Until Christmas the landlord was operating business literally in the next room so could have easily told me but I theoretically, the letting agency has responsibility as they manage the property.
