Not sure if in the right area so feel free to move :)

 

Ok so basically me and my family live in a HA property, we have been here for 4 years and 6 months, it is a flat in a purpose built block made up of 12 flats.

 

My complaint is.... Pets, our tenancy agreement refuses us to have any pets of any description without having written permission, in fact when we took on the property (which we had little choice to do because we were being evicted), we had to re-home our own dog because the HA said we could not take him with us, it was heart wrenching to have to do that, it really is like giving one of your kids away.

 

So anyway, now their is at least 3 flats from the 12 who have 1 or more dogs and another 1-2 flats who have a cat, I have complained to the Council and the HA about this as A. the noise echoes around and B. its against the tenancy agreement terms, Now we have a housing officer who i have managed to speak to ONCE in the 4+ years we have been here, i have sent her numerous (in excess of 15) emails throughout the 4+ years and never, not once had a response, The one time i did speak to her was about 9 months ago and she confirmed that NO FLAT in the block had written permission to have any animals of any kind, and she would get to work dealing with it. anyway, fast forward to now and has anything been done at all....... Nope.

 

It really is taking the **** how the HA know that at least 5 from 12 flats are breaking the terms of the tenancy agreement and have been for years, yet they do nothing about it. It makes me want to sue them for negligence.

 

Anyone any advice, can i sue them.

If they have a no pet rule, then they should abide by it and I understand your frustration at having to rehome your own pet when you moved into the property.

 

You are obviously aware that pets can be noisy as it is this is one of the points you are complaining about , however, be careful that you are not seen to be spiteful in your actions!

I don't believe i am the only person in the block to complain about the people with pets, i just find it amazing that the HA know exactly what flats have what pets and have done for years yet refuse to do anything about it, The noise/smell/principle of it is just wrong, feels like all us abiding tenants are being smacked in the face. I must be able to do something about it.

If others in the block have complained, why not get together and draft a joint complaint ?

Why does it need to be so difficult, is it not as simple as, oh look 15 emails (which are classed as registered post) all sent to the appropriate address all ignored yet acknowledged as received on 1 telephone call, The HA have known for years that 5 flats have pets against TA rules and do not have permission, yet have done nothing about it = Negligence.

the HA will have a board of directors or trustees so get a written complaint about the inaction of the association's staff rather than the issue of the pets itself. The Board wont be able to act directly with the latter but they can have people squirming in their chairs for ignoring complaints about important contractual matters.

Hi

 

From now do not phone the HA (unless you can record the call) put everything in writing. (keep copies and get proof of posting)

 

To access the properties above ground level is it just stair access or both stair and lift access?

 

You need to make a Formal Complaint to the HA in writing and ask for copies of the following:

 

1. Complaints Policy.

2. Pets Policy.

3. Customer Care Standards.

4 Blank copy of the HA latest Tenancy Agreement for your Properties (you want to see if the Tenancy Agreement has changed from the one you signed so compare them)

 

Also have a check of their website as these may be available to download.
