I know this is not a medical matter but I need to get it off my chest and also hope for some advice. I live in a privately rented home and last year the boiler kept breaking down
The landlord sent a Plumber around ( He was not a Plumber) who tried to fix it .He was obviously not a Plumber.
He tried to fix it numerous times and I told the Landlord he was useless. Then I was accused of tampering with it.
Then last November I was informed by the Landlord that a new boiler was to be fitted I was a happy man after the boiler was fitted it was so nice .
Then last month as I am on a pre-payment Electricity meter the credit ran out which I thought was strange as I always try to stay in credit because it's so hard to get to in my condition. The following week it happened again I thought the meter must be faulty.
To cut this short as possible I found out that I am paying for the boiler via the electricity meter on a scheme called the "Green Deal" to the tune of £9.70 a week and the total cost is £5000 over TEN years.
Now I remember signing some paperwork but this was never explained to me. I contacted the Landlord about it and he said the Monet you save on the gas because of the new boiler will offset the higher electricity.
I hotly dispute this and anyway why was I not told beforehand and I received no paperwork whatsoever regarding this. As it is basically a loan I should of been given a copy of the agreement and I am sure you would have a "Cooling off" period.
Now my question is. Is this legal and if not what can I do about it. Sorry for such a long post
