We recently moved into a rented property and there is a fireplace in the property which has been condemned. It is full of cobwebs and a massive dead spider in there aswell. I have asked the letting agent if we could have it replaced but apparently the landlord said she will only get it sorted if we pay half which I don’t think is right. Should the landlord get this sorted out and/or get a new fireplace fitted as we are paying quite alot of money a month for the property?

It really depends whether that was part of your agreement when you moved in. If it was, then it’s the landlord’s responsibility, if not then, as far as I know (I’m not a lawyer) there is no obligation on them to do anything about it unless it’s dangerous. If there could be a health risk then contact your local environmental health department and they might be able to compel the landlord to do something about it.

As for paying half, that’s just a cheeky landlord.
