Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What sort of tenant agreement do you have please?
Its a Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement Signed for 12 Months
For this issues to be solved asap or to get out of the tennancy aggreement
Are they refusing to do the work?
Have you set out all the problems in writing yet?
not so much refusing just not on the ball getting it done a letter was emailed to the land lord and estate agents over a month ago with all the issues it took him a week to reply in which he came out straight away and ripped stuff out but since then been slack however i have all the texts sent to the landlord and his reply to us taking legal action if he does sort it was he knows his rights his sons a solicitor. But at the start of the tenency we had no electrical or gas check nor has there been any in the 18 months here so far i know there legally obliged to do these tasks and there maintainance staff have no qualifications for the work they do
Given what you have said I do not think it is serious enough to end the agreement.
But you need to get a number of quotes for getting the work done, this forms your loss.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a they do the work or pay you to get it done within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not hen you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
