Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
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.
From the circumstances described, the law states that the landlords must ensure the property is in good repair and habitable. If they do not, they could face prosecution by the local council and can be fined.
I would therefore notify the landlord if he does not undertake the necessary steps to rectify this issue you would contact your local council (the housing department) to report the matter as they can step in resolve the issue or force the landlord to rectify the issue at no costs to you.
I hope i have clarified the position.
Thanks and stay safe.
