We’ve been in this property about 3 months and it’s been awful.
We’ve had trouble with the address not being correctly registered with the Council or Royal Mail (still isn’t!), problems with condensation and mould because the electric (not storage) heating is too expensive to run all the time, we still have tractors driving past at all hours (we’re on the edge of farmland), churning the track into a mud pit, despite being tld that an alternative road would be created to avoid the houses, there are cracks in 2 windows and the others are filling with condensation because the seals are broken, you can see daylight under the exterior doors, we been flooded once due to blocked drains…..it goes on!
We now have water seeping through the walls, wter marks on the ceilings, and the house is so damp that the new laminate floor has warped and coats and dog leads left hanging in the utility room have gone mouldy. We have surges of electric that “fried” 3 routers instantly. You can actually watch the light on the Wii glowing brighter and then receding!
In order to help with heating the property we had the pre-pay meter removed (NPower were unable to match the meter to the property) and in return I got a threateneing call from the landlord’s wife, a farm worker at the door and finally the landlord shouting abuse and demanding more money for the bond, all within about 20 minutes!
So, the upshot of this is that we’ve had enough. We want out. Is there any way we can use all of this to get out of the remainder of the 12 month contract that we signed?
