  1. I am renting privately, this is my first time. A kitchen wall mounted cabinet (2 in 1) fell off unexpectedly and broke my personal belongings in the process (it could have hit me as I was in the vicinity a few seconds prior). There was about £100 worth of damage done. I took multiple pictures and reported the repair to my letting agent. I asked them to repair the broken cabinet and to secure the remaining wall mounted cabinet. I have removed my belongings from these and have everything in boxes to one side. I asked for compensation of my broken belongings for the exact amount it would be to replace them. After a few days a contractor came to inspect the damage. They could not see any obvious reason as to why the cupboard had come off according to them. They said they would provide the letting agents with their quote to replace the cabinet and place a bar to secure them all. Two weeks have passed and my letting agent has finally got in touch with the landlord who has approved the repairs but will not reimburse my belongings as this was due to an accident. Do I have any recourse against this? I do not have renters insurance, I am an apprentice on minimum wage so rent itself takes almost half of my money.
  2. Tower Hamlets council today were the first borough in London to enforce the new crackdown on rogue landlords, letting and managing agents. Leading the way, Tower Hamlet's issued 27 fines to landlords and lettings agents ranging from £1000 - £10,000. This is all done under an initiative to crack down on agents and landlords that tarnish the reputation of the industry and make tenants lives a misery by not sticking to the laws that protect private renters. Do you think Fining landlords and letting agents will make the industry better?
