    No heating or water 2nd Apr 19 at 8:59 PM
    Hello all,
    Recently, I moved into some student accommodation and every week or so we receive an email about a water and heating outage that will be upcoming in the next few days. These outages are usually for around 6-8 hours and are to do with some refurbishments that are taking place.
    My question is if I am entitled to receive some sort of cashback on the rent I am paying as this has not just happened once but at least a few dozen times in the past few months.
    Many Thanks,

    No. If you want cashback, use an Amex card.

    I'd let them get on with improving your accommodation.
