Your landlord may just be busy or have forgotten. Remind your landlord repeatedly and in writing, asking for dates for the work to be carried out. Most landlords do get round to these things but some are quicker than others.

However, if the landlord is persistently ignoring your requests for urgent action to be taken, you are within your rights to threaten to move out. But TTV would advise you do so politely and only if you mean it. Most landlords do not want to spend time and money looking for new tenants. Nor do they want their property to sit empty even for a few days – that is lost income. So a threat to move can be a good bluff – but it might also prove to be necessary if the problem is causing you concern.
