Hi thank you for your enquiry and your patience. Is the flat provided to you under your tenancy agreement as including the underfloor heating?
Hi thank you for the further information. If the tenancy provides that the undefloor heating comes as part of the agreement then he ought to fix it. However where you are ok with an alternative then yes you can insist on heating that will give you equivalent level of comfort and heating to the undefloor heating. You should send a stern letter to the landlord, warning them that the heating they are providing nowhere meets the level of heating you were receiving from the undefloor heating and that they are in breach of your tenancy agreement. you could insist on the underfloor heating being fixed but you have been reasonable to accept an alternative and as such should they not provide th oil heater you will look to take legal action and you are entitled to treat the contract as at an end and to leave. You just have to ve very firm with them. I hope this is useful and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience by clicking on the row of stars at the top on your screen before logging off. All the best
Hi, you question is not very clear. What you are saying to them is that they have breached the terms of the contract and you are entitled to treat it as at an end and if they do not provide the heater before the next rent payment date you are not going to pay the rent.
You should tell your landlord that they have breached the tenancy and they are not remedying it so you are withholding the rent. They may however look to evict you as a result of non-payment of rent but if that happens you can defend the eviction on the grounds the eviction is in retaliation/response to your complaints about the breach and failure to repair the heating
