Hello Rick my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
I assume you have photographic evidence?
What is the cost of putting it right?
Ok. Do you know the cost of getting this done? Do you want to move out?
Ok. Do you want to move out? What is it you want to achieve ?
Ok. You need to prepare a schedule of works and ask that it is carried out within 14 days or say you will seek a court order.
If they don't or refuse then you can issue proceedings. This has to be against the landlord as that is who your contract is with.
You would need to complete form n1
The court will set the matter down for a hearing and decide whether to order the landlord carry out the works.
If the court makes the order and the landlord does not this can be contempt of court which they could be warned, fined or sent to prison.
But you can't withhold rent in the meantime sadly.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
It is. I asked if you wanted to move out and you said you wanted them to do the work. You can end the contract yes. Alex
Ok. You can either leave and claim breach or take them to court to get it fixed.
Does that clarify. Alex
You write, saying there is a fundamental breach of contract and leave. But the longer you leave it the harder it is to claim breach.
They are in breach by false representation so penalties don't apply.
Does that clarify? Alex
No we don't, this is an online service which is why it's so cheap. But you inform them in writing, that is all you need to do.
You are claiming fundamental breach of contract, you need to write and set out why, then move out.
Does that clarify?
