Alex Watts : Do you know the cost of repairs please?
no but it is serious damage and not caused by me
i have taken pictures of the damaged ceiling
Alex Watts :
Ok - was it just inconvenient.
no it was dangerous as the heavy stones fall suddenly while we are sitting in the living room. one time it nearly missed my son. The falling parts are big and heavy and i can assure you that if it falls on an adult head it will cause a very serious injury and will put him unconscious.
Alex Watts : Is the property uninhabitable please or was it just inconvenient?
it is uninhabitable
Alex Watts : Ok. In that case you are not liable.
Alex Watts : You can refuse to pay for anything.
Alex Watts : You could also sue for breach of contract.
Alex Watts : This is because the landlord is responsible for all repairs and making sure the house can be lived in.
