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 rest assured that I will respond within 24 hours.
Please confirm the council's and landlord's response to your complaints?
It appears that the landlord obligation under the landlord and tenant act plus the tenancy agreement has not been fulfilled. Therefore this gives rise to a potential rent deduction claim because you have been paying full rent in a property where there is a defective shower. Consequently I suggest you write to the Landlord and remind them of your rights under the law and perhaps the agreement. Notify them if the steps are not taken you will seek a rent deduction claim and also consider instructing someone to fix the issue. Obviously you will seek to claim the costs of fixing the issue from the landlord too. This may prompt a quick response given their failure to respond will mean larger expenses for them.
I also suggest you chase up the Environmental officer within the council on your complaint because it may be the case this has been overlooked.
I hope I have clarified the position.
Thanks and stay safe.
Your welcome and have a good day.
