I would like some advice on what to do regarding the last months rent of my tenancy. I have rented a cottage for 17 months and for the entire tenancy I have had penetrating damp (confirmed by the Environmental health) in one of the bedrooms.
I requested the landlord to address the issue repeatedly but he never addressed the problem or got a builder in to look at the situation. My landlords did not take a deposit from me but oddly enough they asked me for the exact same amount (£1200) as the deposit would have been for the oil in my tank, but I never received a receipt for the oil or proof of amount, content or value.
I am now leaving on the 10th of March and I feel that as I have been so disadvantaged by my landlord that I do not wish to pay him another penny. My landlord says I have to pay him up until the 31st of March as per the terms in my tenancy agreement.
What would happen should I refuse to pay it? I will be taking him to small claims court for the 17 months of rent I paid on the damp room so would this all come out in court ?
My landlord is very hostile at times so I am also slightly fearful of what he might try and do i.e. change the locks etc.
