Unfair practice by Council re hazards in house?

You may wish to read s33 (2) of the Act again- otherwise the Tenant could bypass the Landlord as in my case and just make a complaint to the Council whether it is a valid complaint or not - The Tenant must follow the correct procedure to enable the Landlord to undertake the works and give the Landlord a reasonable time to do them...
