i wondered if anyone can help a little here… i moved into a property which had staining on the bedroom walls. (been at this house for 3 months now), i offered to paint it and smarten it up, landlord agreed i could do it. but we had some very heavy rain over these last few months and its obvious now that its becoming worse.
i’ve taken photos and sent them to the letting agent, apparently the damp problem is known to the landlord, so they knew it was a problem before i moved in.
they’re getting quotes to rectify it (taking long time to sort it, they’re still getting quotes, i first started the conversation about the problem in late january). i wondered if i am able to perhaps get a reduction in rent, its a 2 bedroom property, but i can’t really use the damp bedroom.
i would appreciate some realiable advice if anyone can help. many thanks….
