At present I live in a property and have had issue after issue with repairs. The biggest problem involved damp and mould to which I invited environmental health to view. They suggested many were living in worse conditions but my property was in fact poorly ventilated.
The letting agent was advised on recommendations to be made but these were not statutory. This issue effected my families health severely this winter.
I have recently found that the property was vacant for years and damp proofing had been done along with other major works. However things are practically falling apart such as door handles. locks, bolts loosening with use. This to me is related to the dormant period and now useage is highlighting smaller things. On top of this my letting agent is not very nice to me.
Some issues are new and others have been previously communicated. It is effecting my ability to be confident as I am constantly dealing with issues. Is there anything I can do or someone who can help as my agent will not seem to take me seriously either and I anticipate blame coming in my direction is on the way, and a fight for my deposit of course!
