I used to live under a landlord, which in fact is not a landlord.
She is renting couple of houses as shared houses and laundrying that money in her store. Hoever, she is dodging every scheduled inspections, pretending that she lives in the permises, and hiding other tenants. No receip, just cash in hand, and 5-7 people living in her permises. Paying cash to hand, they have no right, no cleanines in permisess. So she have illegal renting business, with terrible attitude towards tenants. And somehow, she feels untouchable – even if she is breaking low, she feels that there will never be any consequences. So my question is:
What can I do to force the law upon her? THe court can’t do anything becouse she have enough time to arrange everything for the inspection. In Citizen Advice Office I was given the name Tenants Relations Office, so here I am 🙂 I know it is difficult situacion, and maybe there is not much to do – but if there is a law to follow – there always must be some way to force that law. THank you for any advices 🙂
P.S. I DO NOT live there anymore – but I know people that still do. I know it makes things more complicated, but she made me homeless for 2 days because of her whim, and caused me to lost a lot of hard earned money, so I will keep looking for ways to make her act legally or face the law, until I will succeed 🙂
