I rented a flat in London and it has two storage cupboards in the hallway. But those cupboards are occupied by landlord's stuff so I am unable to use those spaces that I am paying for. It has been three months since we moved in and I have constantly been asking the agency to ask the landlord to remove the stuff. My argument is that if the landlord is renting out his place, he can not continue using the storage space to keep his personal stuff.
But the agency says that the landlord is refusing to remove it. The landlord is saying that the house was furnished and that means his personal items that he is keeping in our storage space is part of it. I find that argument utterly stupid and have never heard furnished apartments to mean this.
Since the agency and the landlord refuse to help us, what are my options?
