I moved into my flat in May 2014 and paid the landlord a Month’s Rent upfront and £800 deposit for a unfurnished flat. He has refused to acklowledge his legal requirement’s by placing my deposit into a Protection Scheme.
I have a 2 bedroom flat, and only the lounge has heating (Storage Heater). There’s no heating in the bedroom’s or bathroom and it being Winter it’s very cold. I have requested heating but does nothing about it.
Also the landlord sent out a Gas Safe Engineer on tuesday (13/01/15) to inspect the gas supply to the property, I don’t have Central Heating only a Gas Cooker, The engineer has put a notice on my cooker not to use it as it is at risk.
So I have no way of cooking, No heating, and a £800 deposit unprotected. The bedroom’s seemed to have a mould problem so now winter is here this mould is showing, it look likes the landlord just painted over it before I moved in. I’ve had several trips to my doctors about a peristant cough and being treated with anti-biotic’s.
I do have a Tenancy Agreement (Shorthold) and was renewed in Novemeber 2014.
What are my right’s? I’m still making Rent Payment’s but it seem’s all else is failing.
Thank you for your time.
