Finally we got hot water back on Friday- that's 5 days with no hot water. When we asked to negotiate some discount in our rent for that time due to their failing to meet their obligations to us, we were told that our Landlord would just put the rent up. So basically shut up and pay the rent or get priced out of the property.
Thanks for that.
Where on Earth is the incentive for us as tenants to maintain the property and treat it with respect if they have abolutely no intention of treating us with respect and fulfilling their side of the bargain- i.e. a functioning bloody hot water system!!!! Honestly if you had seen this place when we moved in and how much we've done to improve it....They are Nasty, Nasty people...and there's a reason why throughout history Landlords have been hated and feared.
O.K. Rant over.
