Help! Advice Please!

Recommended Posts

One night in early November I returned from work and the the boiler wouldnt turn on so I had no heating or hot water. I phoned the Landlord who tried to talk me through fixing the gas boiler over the phone. As it was cold and because he made it sound easy I agreed to try and fix it whilst he told me what to do over the phone. To cut a long story short I hadnt re-tightened the valve correctly and about half an hour later a pipe burst and water started coming down through the ceiling.

The landlord at the time agreed to pay for the repair but it hasnt been fully repaired yet. I have since handed in my notice and leave the property next week. I am getting paranoid that he is going to keep my deposit. Am I liable to pay for the damage?

Thanks in advance!

Well, he okayed it, but it's your word against his unfortunately. Next time it's probably better to get the LL to send a trained professional to do that sort of work. Personally i'd never fiddle around with a boiler as it could potentially be very dangerous.
