Landlords are reluctant

I have just moved into my new student flat. I’m a house which is separated into 4 flats. After a day of being here we’ve found that there are multiple leaks in my bathroom, which are now leaking down the hallways in the passage and to another tenants flat downstairs. We requested a contractor to come out, which they did and they told the Landlords on the phone that it the seals and floors needed to be fixed in the bathroom. However, the Landlord refuses to fix the problem but now the floors are starting to dip, and the ceiling. Our main concerns are that

1) the water is dripping next to electrics which is a fire hazard (yet they still refuse to realise this)

2) Damp is building up in rooms which they refuse to fix (I have asthma and I am effected badly by this, this did not mention this when we visited and signed contracts, they simply painted over it to hide the damp and mould. 

3) Fire alarms in the building are either not working or the Landlords have taken out batteries and not replaced them, and didn’t tell us about this. This also puts us at risk. 

We are now at the point where we don’t know how to deal with it all because the Landlord is just not doing anything to make the house safer and or trying to make the conditions better. Is there anyone who knows how we can deal with this?
