My girlfriend rented a house from a couple about a month ago. Before moving in she was told that all the walls would be re-plastered and that all repairs would be done. However, the plaster has started falling off the walls, some minor repairs are still to be done and the couple have gone away to Pakistan for 3 months! But, this isn’t the worst part…
On Monday night my girlfriend was changing a lightbulb in the bathroom when a floorboard gave way. She fell off the ladder and hit both the bath and the toilet (they are situated close together) she was rushed to hospital and had to have surgery as her chest cavity was filling with blood from the injury.
I know I may sound a wee bit clueless but does anybody know what my rights are regarding this accident and the lack or repairs on their part?
Thanks in advance.
