I'm doing again and I said i would not!
just a one liner - if a tenant carries out a mutual exchange with another tenant - would it be reasonable to expect either of them to call in a surveyor to look at the property?
A friend of mine recently moved to London and after taken up the carpets discovered that the floorboards were in need of nailing down and replacing...apparently you could see the gap between the skirting board and floor boards to wiring underneath. The lights keep blowing - the wall is bowing out - and because she moved in after renovations were due to be carried out the estate officer has told her that she is not entitled to have repairs done...would this be correct?
he is now refusing to visit her and her 'case' is now closed because she asked him if he was mad not to see the gap between floor and skirting...he said she had insulted him!
would he be entitled to ignore her requests for essential repairs?
I know it's several lines ...sorry :-(
