We moved into a new development as first tenants. One month in we were advised that there will be continued construction. At this point there was very bad communication from the landlord. At no point on viewing, signing for the AST were we ever advised of ongoing construction in the form of 2 additional floors above our block. In order to get response and place our point / argument I did withhold rent and further lack of communication led me to continually with hold rent. His actions have led me to do so.
So the quiet enjoyment breach is in the form of construction from 7am - 5pm 6 days per week and predicted to end Jan 2013. Our AST started July. Thats almost half the life of the agreement.
We have had discussions but to no avail and then I got served.
My disagreement aswell, is on the basis that we were never informed of any on going construction prior to moving in/signing AST.
