With consent you can do pretty much what you want. I've had tenants in the past that would let me know about something, get it fixed and deduct the money from the rent. I miss said tenants!

Thats fine if they know what they are doing.
But they make an awful job of wiring, or painting and then look for way more than its worth in terms of a discount.
It might even cost you money to fix whatever they do.

Always done by a qualified trades person and receipts got etc. But I see where you're coming from.

If some works on your property you need to know they are insured in the event of an accident so as the landlord you must take charge

Thank you
You need to move. This guys is never going to do the required work. If you are there over a year and nothing ever gets done, I see no evidence that it will ever get done. For the health of you and your new baby, bite the bullet and move. I know it will be difficult, but get it done.

So did I while I was abroad with work. Was just easier for us all with be being abroad to replace the dishwasher, etc themselves and deduct the cost. keep the receipt as well obviously.

was a little worried that I hadn't been by the book which I tried my best to be.

it's easy to say, but if the choice is to take anything, or be homeless, many people choose not to be homeless

We moved into a property (garden house, 2 bedroom) that's behind a apartment building in 1 year ago. When we first went to see property it was damaged real bad, but we had time and so we decided that we will do our best to renovate it. We spent our money and our time to make it nice


Most stupid thing to do its the landlords job to rent ou a house in a good state
Have rented a house myself in a bad state but had a deal with landlord for a cheaper rent for the first couple of years
I would fix the house for him/with him and he give us all of the materials we needed
Al put on contract

know another tenant who did the same as you did and after finishing the job they had to leave the house with not a cent or a thank you from their landlord
Never ever fix the crapp for someone else for nothing

Dont fix anything without prior agreement that's in writing. That's the important bit.

“When we first went to see property it was damaged real bad,“

If he had any intention or concern about fixing it, it would have been fixed before it was advertised and shown. The fact it was advertised and shown in this condition meant he didn’t and doesn’t give a shît. It was a seriously naive decision especially with a child to rent this property.

Would you buy a car with three wheels, broken aircon and a missing sunroof, all on the basis of being told by the mechanic... “ahhh give me the six grand now in a week I’ll have all the parts and I’ll be over to yours to fix “? You just wouldn’t. Learn from the experience and try get out of there.
