Question by lisa: How long can my landlord leave me without no water?
My pipes are frozen and i have a leak and i have switched my water off. I told my letting agent more than 24 hours ago. He said a plumber would call me when he is going to come but i am worried my pipes will burst. I am probably being very impatient but i am desperate for a shower!! Just wondering how long unequally, legally it will take. My letting agent didn’t seem too concerned. I know it isn’t an emergency though.

If he has called a plumber then he has done his part. You just have to be patient. There is not much else he can do. Make sure that you let him know if the plumber does not show up soon.
EDIT: This is not a reason to withhold any part of your rent payment. If you do this, you are giving your landlord the right to force to leave you. If you are looking for a rent refund, the right way to do it is through a hearing with your local landlord and tenant enter.
