Hello, thank you for your reply. The contract says that it is "an Assured Shorthold Tenancy as defined in section 19a of the Housing Act 1988 as amended by the Housing Act 1996".
I hope that helps!
Thank you and kind regards
No, the problem has not been fixed yet: plumbers sent by the landlord have been attending the property several times (almost once a week), and still are, but have been unable to fix the issue; I am strongly suspicious that the problem is structural (an undersized heating system), and that the landlord has been knowing this before the start of the tenancy. Average temperatures have been ranging between 13 and 16 degrees celcius, throughout the past 3 months. I am paying £775.00 per week.
Thank you very much!
