    is there a minimum temperature required for rented accomodation? 4th Jan 09 at 5:02 PM
    hi, just wondered if anyone had any advice on this,...... im 8 months pregnant and have been renting a house for the last couple of months which is impossible to heat! ive used 170 in gas in two months and because the house has no cavity wall or loft insulation it doesnt keep the heat very well- im concerned that when the baby comes we will both freeze! I work part time and am not in receipt of benefits, and so will not qualify for warm front (im waiting to hear if I can get the 300 rebate from them) but in the meantime no matter what I do to this house it struggles to keep a temperature of above 15 degrees. Is there any legal obligation for a landlord to provide anything to maintain a minimum temperature? Or any other advice towards the chill would be great
