Hello, I’m new to the forum. Can anyone tell me if there are any laws (or sections of legal text) that put obligations on a live-in landlord to reasonably heat his house, if he rents to lodgers?
I’m one of three lodgers (I just moved in this January) and we are frequently freezing cold. The heating was turned off this morning and the button to turn-on or boost the central heating system taped up with a “private sign”. None of us were abusing or really using this feature and there is only one hour of heating in the evening. I practically live under my duvet covers just to keep myself from developing health problems.
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
