Hello, i moved into a room as part of a house share on a 6 month agreement with th elandlady , iv now found out after iv lived here for a little over a month ,as the tempriture has dropped that my land landy (not living in) puts the house heating on at the end of october for 6 months then it goes off again. and has threatened if we ( me and housemates after complaining) want it to come on earlier there will be a rent increase to cover costs. i started my tenancy the beginning of august so for 3 months of my tenancy i have no heating at all. the boiler cuboard is a locked handle so no access to it whcih makes me nervious if there a problem we cannot get to the boiler at all. None of this was in my tanancy agreement i had no idea i would spend 3 months of my tenanacy with no access to heating. also i am not allowed a personal heater in my room. is my landlady breaking the law?
