I rented a one bed flat back in August however due to work refs failing I paid 6 months up front. However since moving in there has been damp and mold growing up the bedroom wall and the room is freezing cold so much so I’m unable to sleep in there .
The landlord has addressed the problem and did have builder in to paint the wall with special paint hence it didn’t work mold and water returned to the wall. Now the landlord has had yet more builders in who state its rising damp, so now a damp specialist is to be called in.
My question is as I cannot use the bedroom would it be unreasonable to ask for some kind of discount on the rent or some kind of compensation as I’m unable to use the bedroom as even the bed sheets feel wet and cold due to the damp problem.
I’m due to pay yet another 6 months up front at the end of February any advice please.
