Thanks for comments again
Agree it may be safer to go with an agency next time, but we didn't have much of a choice when we got this place!
You do hear stories of people getting lucky with their landlords, although I suppose it is quite the lottery...

To update slightly, I have somehow made the radiator significantly quieter by whacking it with a hammer. Something I read on a post somewhere on here. Very surprised that it has worked, lets see how long it lasts!

Will also send a letter to her soon. Perhaps try and speak with the neighbors too, I believe the one who ahs moved in quite recently has also had some issues with the landlord
Often radiator noise comes from periodic slips on the suspension brackets as it expands; you can fix this by lubricating the point where they touch, best thing for this is a few wraps of plumbers PTFE tape.

Re: Harassment from Landlord

I'll have a look and see if I can lubricate anything, although there isn't much pipe accessible I think
Perhaps the landlady is trying to start a band? And also taps on her radiator at 6am every day???? Let us hope it does indeed summon the plumber!

Re: Harassment from Landlord

The heatin problem is common with old apartments and the costs of doing anything about it is unthinkabe for most small time property owners.
