I rent a two bedroom house through a letting agent, all repairs are done by them. One of the bedrooms in the house to be completely honest stinks, its like a mouldy urine smell, hard to describe, unfortunately the room is my son’s and he cannot sleep or play in there as the smell is horrible, nothing can be put on the floor as the smell transfers to his toys and clothes, the room door has to be closed to keep the smell out the rest of the house. I reported this to the agent begining of August and they inspected the property mid September and agreed it smelled and they would contact the landlord and let me know what would happen, I’ve heard nothing since.
I’m wondering if they even have to change the carpet, I signed an inventory and accepted the carpet as damaged (it had burns from an iron) but they never mentioned smell. It’s uninhabitable by my standards but not sure if it’s legally uninhabitable.
