Replacement blind

Hi there 
My family and I have lived in a house owned by a private landlord for the last 26yrs.
The velux skylight window was replaced in our kitchen complete with blind not long after we moved in. 
This week I opened the blind only for it to fall down.
On investigation it appears that 2 lugs holding blind in place have   broken possible due to age.
I have contacted agent who works on behalf of the landlord asking for a fitter to replace said blind only to be told "we do not fit or supply blind,curtains or any other window dressing and its too far back gor unto check".
This I believe to be true on any new properties they rent out but what if any course of action do I have as far as I'm concerned I never asked for said blind and it was fitted by the company tradespeople at that time.

    Find a supplier of Velux blinds and tell them what window you have - it might have details on a plate on the edge of the window so they'll be able to tell you what you need. 
  • I would suggest speaking to a blind company online, I have used a website for curtains and blinds before and they were really helpful, I sent them images and got some really good advice

    What do you actually want?  A new blind?  No blind?

    Seems like it's done well to last 26 years.
  • There is a directory of blind fitters on this website,  maybe worth talking to someone local to you?

    I can't post links as I am new, search The Blind Tailor Fitter Locator
  • You need a local blinds shop that does Velux and they will have the spare fixing component
