Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is it you would like to know about this today please?
Yes I read that thanks. What is it you would like to know? Can you move out?
Yes. This is a question and answer site, so I can tell you what to do, but I cant act for you.
Is that ok?
Yes you can get out. The Landlord and Tenant Act says they must provide hot water and heating. Therefore they are in breach and you can get out.
However this is what is called a fundamental breach of contract - to act on it you need to leave asap. This is because the longer you leave it the harder it is to claim - the Landlord may well say you accepted the breach.
Therefore you can claim fundamental breach of contract and move asap.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
indeed, you can claim for damage caused to yours. If they dont return the deposit you can take action.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund 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 refund you then 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://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-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.
Reduction for time you have been there without water and refund of deposit.
They wont let you leave, which is why you just need to and then tell them
Does that clarify?
Indeed. You can leave on that basis the leak has not been fixed.
you need to leave now. Don't give notice, just go. That is all you need to do.
Please don't forget to rate otherwise the site doesn't credit me for time spent.
the problem is if you leave it, this is considered as agreeing to the breach. If you read what I put on 21/11 at 4.04 you will see I outlined the steps here.
I suggested then you move out asap.
you want it back. Does that clarify?
tell him whatever you want, its nothing to,do with him!
well I can only tell you what the law is. You either move out and claim fundamental breach, or stay and risk not being able to go because you have left it so long.
