Holidayromp, REIWA advised us to just exploit our rights with this lovely LL and just keep asking for things to be fixed, which might eventually tick her off enough to let us out of our lease. Not that we relish at being pain in the asses, but we'll try to enjoy it. ;P
There are very few windows in this house that open, without risk of the glass smashing, so I was just thinking if I can find something about it, I might ask that they get fixed before the warmer weather.
I'm quite keen for the bedrooms to have a window at least that opens as the kids room is getting a bit stale. Given the cold weather so far, I've opened the front and back doors and one side window in the back part of the house.
Sometimes, the answers you seek are not right before your eyes. You just need to dig a bit.
Yes, I think I'll go into the building codes a little. Not wanting to waste too much energy on it, but a quick look might reveal something. And I love you can search 'windows' with Google. Nifty.
Thanks again everyone.
