1. 3 bed detached

By boonmi - stayed here from 1st November 2013 to 1st June 2014

When we moved in the house had been re-decorated but not properly cleaned. We have photographic evidence of the lack of cleanliness. The conservatory leaked. The shower leaked. The bathroom and en-suite smell of mould/damp. There was a leak/damp patch in bed 3. We are 6 months into the let and whilst the shower was fixed after serveral attempts, the bath in the same room has cracked and we cannot use the shower or bath until this is fixed. The conservatory still leaks and there is still a leak and damp patch bed 3. Windows have to be left open on lock, all the time, in bathroom and en-suite to avoid build up of mould/damp smell. we have spent numerous hours on other issues, waiting in for tradesmen to call to quote and then again to do the work on the other issues we had when we moved in (boiler not working properly, rads not hot and other lesser issues). The latest bathroom leak was reported 7 weeks ago to the landlord. It is still not fixed and we now have more tradesmen coming next week to quote. The whole renting process appears to be pot luck with little regulation from the time you hand over the deposit. Overall not a great experience with the landlord or letting agent, no one is held accountable, yet we can have our deposit held back if we do not abide by the rules and regulations of tenancy. This seems very biased towards the landlord. We continue to pay on time for facilities we cannot fully use and keep the house in good order. Our agreement ends 31 October 2014.
