Hi there, I am renting a semi rural cottage. There are numerous issues which I have reported verbally many times but not put into writing until recently. Either way, nothing is done. Some of the issues are as follows. - main door will not close or lock, the door frame is warped or something. I have to barricade it to keep it closed. - shower hot water does not turn on. - toilet is not fastened to the floor and when flushed half the water sprays onto floor from the piping. - several power points and light sockets do not work, rooms are in the dark. - veranda floor boards are broken and protruding upwards. - fly screens are torn. - kitchen and laundry, where the walls meet the floor you can see outside and debris and dirt flies in freely with a light breeze. These are only some of the problems. I am a single parent with a teenage daughter who on occasion has to stay there on her own. It's a big task for her when the property is not secure. Is there anything I can do under property law? The real estate won't address the problems and tells me I am bound to see out the lease regardless of these issues.
