After some help and advice please we rent from a housing association.
We moved into a new build 3 years ago we looked after the garden extremely well ensuing the grass was cut every week during season and well maintained.
All of a sudden it died off and the ground kept water logging and has still been doing soo Iíve been fighting with the landlord for the past year and a bit about this issue.

We had a GEO tech specialist attend and carry out an inspection and offered a quote with a mini report of what works are needed for the lack of drainage to be sorted, I passed this to our landlord who confirmed in writing they had agreed to install a suitable drainage soloution after saying for over a year itís down to us as a maintenance issue.

Surveyor attended to put a schedule of works together so we were told and then we received a letter to inform us that they wouldnít be taking any action to rectify the issue as its not their responsibility!!

I suffer with mental health issues including anxiety and a daily limiting health condition our garden is our only place where I feel comfortable outside of the house but we are left in a situation I donít even want to see that as it makes me feel even worse!!

Any suggestions please we are at our wits end and at breaking point

This is a case where your local M.P.or town council could intervene on your behalf.I understand more complaints are made about public sector housing than private landlords,and the state of many such houses is quite terrible. Get someone on your side.If other neighbours have similar problems,join forces with them.
