Hello all. I am a first time renter and have just had my first 'disaster' and am not sure who's responsibility it is.
We have the metal roller blinds throughout the house (http://www.blind-inspiration.com/Images/Content/Wood-Metal-Venetian-Image2-440-440-FIT.jpg), I had just finished dusting the ones in the dining room and was pulling the string to lift them up completely when they came crashing down.
They have fallen off, taken quite a bit of plaster with them and caused some dints and scratches on the window sil.
As I was just using them as they are meant to be used (surely they shouldn't fall out just from pulling on the string!!) I am thinking I should call the landlord and have him fix them? But at the same time we don't want to be **** tennants so if it's really our responsibility I'd rather just try and sort it ourselves.
Any ideas/advice? :(
