FOR JOMO1972. the hole is only very small and when you have a shower it only drips slowly but my LL is saying he is not willing to get it repaired and wants £150 for a new bath which i think is very expensive for a bath, he hasn't even looked into getting it repaired,like i said i don't mind paying i just think its very unreasonable to ask us to buy a brand new bath when it can be repaired for half the cost.
there are companies that specialize in it and you can also get what you call a fiber glass kit that seals underneath the bath,then you can get a bath kit that you put on inside the bath and once its done you can't even tell its been damaged, and you can get these for about £20 each and you would just hae to get maybe a plumber to do it.
FORJOMO1972 The bath was not new at the start of the tenancy so it shouldn't be at the end, that would make him materially better off than he was at the start. Does the bath have to be a certain age? We have lived here for 3 years now and as I said it wasn't new when we moved in. He is being totally unreasonable, we have offered to pay towards the cost of the bath if he insists on a new one, when I said to him it can be repaired he said thats not satisfactory to me I need to think of the future, we should not have to pay for his future. We have also offered to pay for all materials needed to fix the bath but still he wont listen. We are not denying its our fault but we shouldnt have to pay the full cost of replacement when the bath is not beyond the state of repair. Could I have a bit more information on this please?
FOR JOMO1972 you stated if the bath is 5 years old does that mean anything.?? I need as much info as possible. I want to do this right. I will be showing this to my landlord so every point needs covering, properly. I am paying for this so I am entitled to ask if there is any more information you can provide to help me.
