I had the same problem in 2008. I moved into a housing association flat in a lovely part of Georgian Liverpool (L8). fantastic apartment that I could
actually afford on my really good salary of 15K p.a. (compared to others that is - nowhere near the Merseyside "median" pay rate incidentally, where
that comes from I have not the foggiest).
The day I move in the plumbers are there putting the final touches to the kitchen. Nice unit too. They switch on the gas and leave. Within minutes
there is a smell of gas. I call the BG emergency gas number. The guy comes round. Theere's a gas leak alright. He tears the kitchen aprt, including
ther lovely brand-new kitchen units and floor (!) just to get to the leak. Finally he shows me the section of pipe that was leaking. There was a hole,
like someone had hammered a nail straight through it.
next task was to call the housing association to get it fixed. I made about ten phone calls, had three separate plumbvers come out asnd look at the
mess. No one, would put my effing kitchen back together. In the end I just moved out!
I am sure that if I was from some minority, had a kids, or just wasn't me, that the goddamn kitchen would have been fixed. But no - I had gas sure,
but no bloody kitchen and they just did not care. How was I going to fix it? Get a loan, go into debt? I wish.
Totally shocking. You are doing well in comparison. keep your chin up!
