I live in a certain area (out of necessity--not choice) and I pay quite an expensive rent (again, out of necessity) at what point does my landlord have to provide me with a rust free bathtub? How rusted does it have to be to be considered un-usable?
The bathtub itself is broken and rusted, the toilet seat is broken and the design of the bathroom itself is flawed--so that if anyone does take a shower/bath the entire bathroom becomes flooded and water goes into the hallway.
The second bathroom has a hole in the floor through which wild animals crawl through (mice and squirrels--and once a baby bird)
*The property management company feel like a re-grout will sort out all the problems.
I wouldn't be posting this but the property company know I'm not from the UK and don't really have a choice to live anywhere else. I cannot explain why I can't move--just take my word for it please.
I have been complaining about the bathrooms since the day I moved in (14 months now).
Please help me either re-adjust my expectations or know what I am entitled to.
Contact environmental health dep at your local council. I'm sure they'd be interested in the state of the place you're living in. Councils can enforce that work be done on a property and you can legally withhold rent (with their guidance) until its done.
