Communication issues to landlord via agent

Reply to the comment left by "Steve From Leicester" at "07/10/2014 - 12:45":

Hi Steve, the issue about the repairs has gone one for nearly 3 years now, i have contacted the letting agents on more than a few occassions and have even contact the landlord myself, he is just in breach of contract , as its clear he is not going to get the repairs work done. I had previously offered to improve my bathroom, such as replace the whole bathroom suit as its an old enamal one and it is worn and looks disgusting. I said i would pay for it and he refused, so wont let me help and improve or do it himself.
As for the fire alarm maintenance, I am a responsible person and take the safety of everyone in the block seriously, there is only one entrance and exit and the fire alarm is tested once a month. WE as a whole block have asked a bit of common sense as we cannot get a day off work/ drop a days pay, but the response has been basically we can lump it. If you saw the state of the building you would understand our frustration, being totally honest if a fire in here broke out none of us would stand a chance due to the state of the building, poor insulation between walls and floors windows not shutting which would just ingolf it in a flash and im not exsaggerating. We are all good tenants, there is good bunch in here we all get on but are all fed up with being fobbed off.... Read More

Communication issues to landlord via agent

I have asked friends but they are all at work, my neigbours aren't happy as they carn't get time off work and don't trust the letting agents either as they have the same problem getting repairs done, plus 2 of the people in the block of flats who rent live abroad and wont be here :/. They are all asking me for advice but i don't know what to do. I cannot miss this job interview......... Read More

Mark its been a month since i wrote to my landlord and he responded with he going to look into it yet nothing.
The only thing i have had from letting agents is a letter that all tenants have had, is that they want access to all our flats on 16th of this month, if we are in good or they have asked us to provide a key for hem to use for apparently essential maintenance on the fire system.
I'm not in on that day nor would i ever give them permission to be in "my home" when i'm not there. Don't trust them full stop, i know they have a emergency key in the office which fills me with horror.
I have been looking for somewhere else but getting nowhere wish i had never moved here.... Read More

Communication issues to landlord via agent

Hi all,
Just to update i wrote to my landlord about my repairs that i have asked for , for the last 2 and half years such as the windows and bathroom and damp and mould and other bits.
I finally received a letter from him yesterday saying:

"Thank you for your letter, I am not aware of the specific circumstance regarding your flat but will contact our agents ...... who will be in touch with you in due course. Yours Sincerely.

So still not any wiser if the letting agents have contacted him or not.... Read More
