Lawyer specialising in tenants' rights?
Hi, does anyone know where I could turn to find out about my rights as a renter/tenant? Due to move into a rented house in less than a month, and the previous renter has told us that several of the bedrooms will be unuseable for some time due to a flooding problem that has damaged the wooden floor, and that won't be able to be repaired for a few months until the wood has completely dried. Our landlady's insurance will cover the repair, but I imagine we can't even move our things into the affected rooms. Landlady hasn't contacted us yet to discuss, but before we contact her we'd like to understand our rights if the house is not actually properly habitable when we get the keys. Are the any kind of renters associations, or would we need to contact a specialised lawyer? Any recommendations? Thanks
