Have you got a contract,do you know your rights as a tenant? you can always get hold of Shelter, they are very good, they will let you know where you stand.Also you can get in touch with the landlords association,thats if your landlord belongs to one , I have had this problem with my landlord, I cant ring him the answer phone is on all the time.if I write to him he does not bother to respond,so I sent him a email yesterday,just waiting to see if he replies. any way all the best.
