Right, so ive been living in a private rented property for 3 months now with my 1 year old son. All looked great when we came to view and it didnt take me long to choose if i wanted the property. Since then there has been a few problems, there was a leak from a pipe in my sons room that had been going on from before my landlord had even bought the property and now half the bedroom carpet (that i paid to have put down so my son could play in there) has had to be lifted so they could get to the floorboards which have also been ripped up. It has been like this for around 5 weeks now the whole bedroom is a mess and my son has to sleep with me as ive been told off builders who have come to look at it the room is not safe as floorboards are crumbling. My landlord keeps telling me she is sending someone to sort it but they never turn up and its a never ending job. To top this off ive now been told the kitchen ceiling is going to have to be ripped off cos all the joists have rotted and they need to replace them. I feel so upset about all this i wanted to move to a nicer house for my son and now all this. Also my landlord knows im a single struggling mum and has not offered discount or anything from rent when im basically living in a 1 bedroom house. She just says she is going to send someone round to fix it they dont turn up. Im just wondering where i stand in all this? My tenancy agreement is not up while November but as much as i dont want to move again, what would happen if i left and took another property?
