Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Does your tenancy agreement exclude the garage please?
I would have to look back at the actual terms and conditions of my contract, but there is a note on the door that it is not for tenant use, though I have been living there since Dec2012 and the padlock was only put on sometime last night.
I am concerned that if there is a fire, my fire exit is now blocked.
Check the tenancy agreement please to see what it says and whether it specifically excludes the garage and let me know
It should be at home somewhere, I don't have it with me, though will check through me emails.
But does she not have some responsibility to provide a safe exit for me in the event of a fire etc
That is fine - let me know when you have it, no rush
Further to above, we have to maintain the garden to the house, she says we can use tools that are in the garage!!! Even though she says she is now making it crystal clear that we cannot go through, enter, use the garage. So we can use the garage or we can't????? Inconsistencies exist in regards ***** ***** running of the household irrespective of the tenancy agreement. Some people in the house/previous tenants never signed an agreement for their rooms either though this doesn't directly relate to my case.
Yes - the garage part is key though
Is it possible to ask the Landlord for a copy?
