Can private landlords refuse to let to Housing Benefit claimants?13:36 PM, 14th October 2020

Our BTL flat is one of three flats above two shops. The Freehold of the whole building was sold in January this year.
Repairs are needed urgently to the roof and yet after initial contact and several visits by surveyors, the freeholder’s managing agent is now ignoring all calls and emails from us and our managing agent.
We cannot get any information about what’s happening. There is a hole in the roof above our flat and water leaks into the bathroom, causing damage and staining and is also dangerous as it leaks in to the light fittings.
A request for claiming on the buildings insurance was made two months ago, no info about that either.
Not sure how to proceed for the best – consult our solicitor?
