with holding rent?
A tenant contacted me to tell me some of the mortar in the gable end had dropped out and birds were nesting there , making noise , waking his kids up i went round and met the tenant at the property , a small amount of mortar is missing as he said so i phoned a builder right there and then as the tenant was stood next to me , long story short , the builder never turned up and i got a text today saying they had held ALL the rent back and if i have not got it sorted they are getting a builder in saturday morning (today is friday) and were giving me the bill, its about 2 weeks since i went round and phoned the builder , i am desperately trying to find some one to do the job ,but because its only a small job nobody wants it, whats my next move ? i can not have the tenant dictating to me in the way they are doing
