    Default New windows/double glazing

    I have a good landlady and I am happy in my home, only problem is its a 1900 cottage with very old windows.
    All the rooms get very bad condensation on the windows (which freezes inside in the winter) my kids room has a lot of
    Mould of the curtains and I have to have a de-humidifier on all day.
    My neighbour (same style property, same landlady) had
    Secondary glazing fitted but she had to pay half - the
    Landlady will do the same for me paying half but my neighbour pays 350.00 PCM less than me. Should I pay half?

    Many thanks for your advice

    Suggest you wait until 28th January & see if it can be done "free" under Green Deal or ECO. Ask for a Green deal assessment - you might even be given £150 for having it done. Maybe other things done also...

    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

    Is your neighbour a regulated tenancy and you are not.

    I certainly wouldn't pay anything towards improvements in a house if the LL can give me notice tomorrow (even if I was sure that they wouldn't)
