I have been badly burned by hot water in a rental property. I have checked the heater thermostat, and for some reason, it has been set at 80 instead of the required 60, in spite of the fact that anything above 70 will cause 3rd degree burns in less than a second. Do I have any recourse whatsoever? Do landlords and agents have any duty of care to ensure safe conditions in the property, or to make tenants aware if such a high temperature has been set? I have lost two weeks of work as a result, not even taking into account pain and suffering. Any help greatly appreciated - thanks!
