Access obstructed to rented property
I've just signed a contract on a newly refurbished flat. As part of the refurbishment the landlord has been using a skip that is placed across the entrance to the flat. I can squeeze past but am unable to move in due to not enough space to move in my furniture, white goods, etc. I have shared my situation with the renting agency and landlord, and asked if it can be moved ASAP so I can actually move in. Hopefully it will be resolved in a few days, but if there is no action within a week or so do I have a right to refuse payment of rent for those days where I could not obtain unobstructed access?
