I have not had hot water since Easter. I have reported this to the letting agent and have 6 contractors attend the property. The contractors advised that the reason was for no water is due to timings on my electric meter. I arranged for a new electricity meter to be installed to find out the timings on the previous meter were fine and me not having hot water is nothing to do with the electric meter. Again I have informed the letting agent they have now decided to get a second opinon.
I did with hold £95.00 of my rent but I was told that I was in breach of my tenancy agreement, I made this payment up and have paid full rent for May as well, but the hot water situation has not changed.
I now have asked for compensation or a rent reduction for the next three months, I am still waiting to confirm whether they will offer me anything. Can I withold some rent money without having threats that I will be taken to court. I have lived in the flat 3 years and paid 5 months rent deposit.
