I moved into a property rented through an estate agent, at the time of viewing the property in late April they informed me the double-oven would be replaced, I subsequently moved into the property in June and was told when picking up the keys that the oven hadnt been replaced as the landlord said it was on backorder.
Needless to say nearly two months have gone and still no oven, have spoken to the agents who just keep saying they’ve emailed the landlord, basically giving me a different story each time.
The current oven isnt fit for purpose, has no knobs on the front to turn on gas hob, oven or grille I have to use a pair of long nose pliers each time. The oven only gets warm never hot enough to cook in.
I am annoyed as they said this was all being sorted prior to moving in.
I went into the estate agents last week as a majority of the window catches and handles are completely broken making the property unsecure I mentioned this to them and that I had replacement window locks fitted they then complained at me saying I should have informed them and they would get the landlord to solve it. I mentioned to them that my confidence in the landlords ability to resolve issues was very low.
So question what rights do I have in relation to the oven, its likely I am going to be moving jobs shortly which requires relocation could I use this issue as leaverage to terminate my contract?
