I recently rented a property lease commencement date of 9/9/16. The property was let through an estate agent who informed me the owner is managing the property herself.
Shortly after moving in i noticed the combi boiler was not working and constantly cutting out. This means there is absolutly no warm water nor heating available to me at the start of the lease. I contacted the LandLady immediately since then she has sent a boiler specialist out who has stated the oil tank needs replaced. This was on 16/09/16. Since then there has been absolutly no communication I have tried on numerous occasions to get in contact all with no success.
This is now 12 days without warm water or heating.
How do i proceed?
The law says without heating the property is inhabitable. Surely then I should not have to pay rent for a place which is inhabitable?
