Hello all,


I was horribly awoken by someone trying to break into my flat via my bedroom window (basement flat ground floor). I think my screaming scared whoever it was off. Fortunately no one was hurt nor was anything stolen.


The police have been great, they have advised me that my windows are not secure and the locks currently on them are easy to get past, there is a second lock on the window which would be better but they are broken. As I am on the ground floor I am considering getting bars or a gate put up just to make the place more secure but this is probably going to be quite expensive, can i get the landlord to pay?


We have already emailed our estate agent who manages the property but she has not got back to us yet :mad2:


I am just after some advice as to where i stand as a tenant.


any help would be appreciated


Thank you

It would be relatively cheep And easy to fit new locks

Keep on at estate agent for them to send someone round to fix them

They may be happy for you to do so and refund you the cost

If i have helped in any way hit my star.

any advice given is based on experience and learnt from this site :-)
