WE MOVED INTO THE PROPERTY IN OCTOBER 2014, FROM DAY 1 WE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE HEATING AND HOT WATER, FOR OVER 5 MONTHS THROUGH THE WINTER PERIOD WE HAD NO WATER OR HEATING IN THE UPSTAIRS OF THE PROPERTY, AND ONLY 50% OF THE RADIATORS WERE WORKING DOWNSTAIRS, THIS WAS EVENTUALLY SORTED OUT BY MARCH 2015. THROUGH THE SUMMER MONTHS THERE WAS NO PROBLEMS, FROM THE BEGINNING OF SEPEMBER THE OIL FIRED BOILER STARTED PLAYING UP , WE HAD NO HEATING AND HOT WATER FOR 3 OUT OF 7 DAYS A WEEK FOR A PERIOD OF 6 MONTHS . ANYWHERE IN THE PROPERTY, THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE IN THE HOUSE WAS 7 DEGREES ,  WE HAD TO GO TO BED CLOTHED AND COULD NOT HAVE A BATH OR SHOWER, THE PLUMBERS WERE ALWAYS AT THE HOUSE BUT BASICALLY JUST GOT THE BOILER BACK ON AND NEVER RECTIFIED THE MAIN PROBLEM. THIS HAS CONTINUED REGULARLY THROUGHOUT THE TENNANCY, I INFORMED THE AGENT I WAS NOT PREPARED TO PAY RENT FOR THE PROPERTY DUE TO THE SITUATION AND THAT IT NEEDED SORTING OUT. THIS WAS IN NOVEMBER 2016, WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD THE PLUMBERS CAME AND INSTALLED NEW PIPEWORK AND ELECTRICS AND TIMERS ETC. IT TOOK 1 DAY. THE FOLLOWING DAY WE WERE GIVEN A SECTION 21 NOTICE. I HAVE FOUND OUT THAT THE LANDLORDS DAUGHTER IS MOVING IN THE PROPERTY, AMAZING THAT IT CAN BE FIXED FOR HER , I FEEL INSULTED AND ANNOYED , WHY WAS THIS NOT DONE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE TENNANCY ? I HAVE PAID IN EXCESS OF £56,000.  OVER THE LAST 29 MONTHS.

Please amend your all caps and format the post for readability and clarity. 

When you do, I will comment on your issue. 

I’m sympathetic with your problems, but you have to realise that it makes it very hard for me to help, if you don’t put the effort to use standard paragraphs and normal sentence caps.
