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.
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.
