I got a letter from the housing association which unsurprisingly says it is not its responsibility to fix the lift, it's that of the "property owner". Both groups will say therefore it is the landlady's responsibility to fix the lift. The landlady will say it's the council's, the block has nothing to do with her.
Round and round I go. Only I'm not going to bother going round, not for that.
When I told you it was a pain in the arse to be caught within this threesome of council, housing association and landlady (Housework) I didn't expect an example to come up so soon.
