Advice needed please....
To summarise. ..
I rent a flat above a launderette, reduced rent based on the understanding that there would be some noise.... ( approx 10 % , I still pay £100 per week)
The noise has risen to a level so that even when the TV is on loud , it is still annoying.
The noise starts at 7:50 a.m. and stops at 10 p.m.
I have spoken to the landlord , who also owns the launderette, and he says there is not a lot he can do.
The flat is also a new build,as is the launderette.
It is impossible to sleep, read or even watch tv during the times the launderette is open.
And the noise is there even if no-one uses the launderette ,7 days a week.
I have threatened to get in touch with Environmental Health ,I really don't want to move and really don't think that anyone else would live with the noise.
Surely if he has a commercial and a residential premise , then he has a duty to ensure the flat is habitable.....
All advice , ( apart from just moving out,I know that's an option ) gratefully received....
