We moved into the house we are currently renting in July last year.
From the very start there were issues with the house & yard being filthy, there were random things floating around the the backyard, the house had not been cleaned and there were the previous tenant/owners belongings still in the house, the clothes line couldn't be used and the light in the laundry gave me an electric shock, We spoke to the property manager about this and he said he would speak to the owner and get all of the issues fixed.
The property manager then got back to us and said we can clean up the yard ourselves and we would receive compensation, this never happened.
We called a few days later to advise that the kitchen sink leaks, the back sliding door had locked itself and we were not given a key & the oven door just came off, the property manager advises he will speak to the owner and get back to us...
We didn't hear back from the property manager so i called the office a few days later and spoke to the manager of the office, he said he would get onto it and get everything fixed... Once again no one got back to us.
We ended up getting a plumber in to fix the sink and a few other issues.
Now the hot water is leaking once again in the kitchen which leads to us having no hot water to shower with as the hot water system is tiny and also the cabinet under the sink is starting to rot because of the leaking water, the toilet is now also leaking and we have wood cockroaches everywhere because the house is falling down around us.
We want to move and want to know if we can give only 14 days notice due to what we think is a breach of agreement.
So, back to my original question, do you consider this to be a breach of agreement?
Im a little worried to go this route as all of the contact in regards to repairs was done over the phone, none were reported in writing, will this be an issue?
Thanks in advance!
