Now then, don't know where to stick this so NAAFI seems ok but some serious answers are needed. Two days ago housemate comes home and finds random bloke in the house, he turns out to be the 'Gas Man' looking at the boiler doing a gas safety cert check. Landlord had apparently given him a key. Landlord did not check with anyone living in the house whether this would be ok - now this seems to be against the contract in place and probably the law. It's his building but my home, I say who comes in and when, unless it's an emergency. I call the landlord and tell him I'm not impressed with what happened and would appreciate notice in future as letting random people into the house unsupervised is not his decision to make, and probably voids my insurance for a start. He gets upset with me as he was 'doing me a favour' for doing the check. I thanked him for the check, asked him to give further notice next time. Tonight my housemate had a visit at work from landlords business partner who was about to come over to the house and give me a beating for being a cheeky twat. He gets calmed down and goes home. Now I'm living in a house, with a landlord who has a key to get in at anytime and is probably one drink or a bad mood from coming around and beating me in my sleep or something - if he wanted to. What can I do legally? I have another 2 weeks left before contract is up for renewal. They have Â£250 of my cash, want to deduct Â£135 already as 'summer' rent (I won't be here though..).
