Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.
Whaty does your lease say? Is it full repairing?
Is it a full repairing lease?
Did you have a survey when you moved in or before you moved in?
Did you inspect before you leased?
Ok - so you had a discount knowing the condition?
So I assume you inspected and took it on, knowing what it was like?
Was there a schedule of dilapidations when you moved in?
Ok - are they refusing to complete these works?
Ok - if its not safe and the lease does not say you are liable then the Landlord is.
As such you can ask that the works are done. If they refuse you can go to Court.
You can seek an injunction to get the works done.
But unless its a full repairing lease then the Landlord is liable.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
