Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays but i will respond within 24 hours.
Please can you confirm the length of your tenancy agreement?
The Law imposes a repairing obligation on the landlord. Further the law also states that the landlord must ensure the property is fit for human habitation. Therefore when this law is breached the tenant can seek a rent deduction which will be based on a percentage of the monthly rental value.
In view of the law and the circumstances it appears the landlord/estate agents have breached the law and therefore i recommend you should report the matter to your local council as they can force the landlord/estate agent to carry out the necessary repairs and also they may fine them too. Further i recommend you write to the estate agents of your intend to withhold rent until the issues are fixed and also notify them you will report them to the local council. This tactic will likely force the estate agent to take proactive steps to resolve the issue ASAP.
I hope i have clarified the position, if not please let me know.
Thanks and stay safe.
Your welcome and hopefully things get resolved ASAP.
Have a good day.
Given the length of time you have been and still residing in the property with this defect i suggest you request a degree of rent deduction.
Further i suggest you notify the landlord to contact curry's because i suspect curry's may not want to speak to you given you did not purchase the cooker.
Your welcome and hopefully things get sorted ASAP.
You can put the question to them again given it was avoided.
That said have a good night and stay safe.
