Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
You would be in breach of the tenancy agreement.
However what you can do is get a report done and issue proceedings against your Landlord to get the repairs completed
But the agreement will have a clause saying you can not deduct or set off sums
Therefore you could be evicted
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
But you can sue the Landlord for breach of contract
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
What can I expect to gain from sueing my landlord for breach of contract
