I have been renting a property for around 5-6 months, and have another 6 months on the agreement.
Since moving in, its been an absolute nightmare. From the boiler packing up every 5 minutes, leaving us with no hot water or heating.
Even when the heating does work, the pressure on the boiler is a real problem, and the heating doesn’t stay on for more than 15 minutes.
For the past week I have been without heating, and for the past month since the temperature has got a lot colder, I have been waking up with constant headaches, have been depressed and stressed – I report regularly to the estate agents.
They promise it will be sorted one day, then a week goes by, and nothing happens. The goal post keeps being moved.
I am 22 with my partner, no babies or elderly people.
The estate agents gave me 2 little radiators to borrow, but that does nothing for even one room in the flat. The flat is smells of damp and my clothes now smell also.
I record all calls and emails sent to estate agents, but do I have any rights to not pay full months rent / end tenancy agreement sooner?
Id appreciate any advice.
