    Any Surveyors or Legal people about? Need some housing advice!

    I've been renting my current property for almost 2years. During this time
    I have a surveyor from the housing come 8wks ago, to assess if the house is fit enough to be classified as a 'Decent Home' it failed in many areas - he advised that there is a housing standards service that deals with complaints about repairs & standards of accommodation - it was something on the lines on HSEE or HSSA (he gave me the short name for it). I did find them on the internet & saved it as a favourite, but my laptop packed up so I have purchased a new one; however for the life of me I can't remember the name of the site/company.

    Does anyone have any idea?

    Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS)?

    I'm guessing you have a tenancy agreement or something along those lines, read it and see what obligations the Landlord is under - there should be clauses detailing that the property should be in fit condition etc

    I would hold back the rent until the repairs were carried out, you'll soon get a response from him but be ready to fight your corner and you should be fine
