Don't know whether anyone will be able to help, but thought it was worth a shot ... I'm currently renting a house with some friends, and we have just been told from our landlord that he wants to start building work on the house starting Saturday if possible. He is hoping to turn our bathroom into an extra bedroom and turn our utility room into a small shower room. This building work was not mentioned when we signed the contract about a month ago, and so is he within his rights to do this? and if he is, can he force us to live with an extra housemate even though the contracts were signed by just the three of us. I've got a feeling that he probably can do what he likes as its his house ... but as tennants we decided to live here for a variety of reasons (including the big bathroom ) and had we known in advance about all this the chances are we would not have signed the contracts. I've tried phoning the Citizens Advice Bearau with little success as it just seems to be an automated voice, and I can't visit them as I work 9-5 at the moment. Any ideas of anyone else to contact?!
