I moved in just before Christmas, there were several repairs plus the putting in of a shower that should have been done by this time, including servicing the boiler.
The boiler broke down 2 days after I moved in and took 5 days to fix (it is still not completely done). I have had workmen in almost every day for the 2 week holiday period and had to stay elsewhere for the 3 days I was without heat and hot water. I have been very accomodating of this, despite the fact it seriously inconvenienced me and my attempts to unpack were stalled somewhat and that I haven’t always known when or at what time to expect the workmen. The work is still not completed.
The agent originally said she could offer me nothing,”it’s just one of those things., the boiler was working fine” etcetc. However I do feel some kind of rent reduction for the 3 days I couldn’t stay there would be fair.
I wondered what others thought?
