There has been little or no response from the Estate agent or landlord to get any essential repairs done and it is becoming inhabitable and unsafe. My daughter has been in the flat for 4 years and has been continually asking for repairs to be done each toime her contract hads come up for renewal/
She has telephoned housing standards who have replied that they will just refer the matter to the estate agent. The Estate agent did send a person to photograph the mould etc several months ago and it was agreed that it was not a healthy environment for a child but still nothing was done. The repairs include:damaged fascias resulting in leaks in hallway and lounge. front wall of lounge black with mould, Inadequate drainage system resulting in the bath filling up with stagnant water whenever the washing machine or kitchen taps are used. Also mould in both bedrooms and no ventilatilon in bathroom resulting in mould as well as no window in the kitchen and the oven door is missing.There are also other repairs but these are just the main ones.
