    Fridge freezer and Dishwasher

    My tenant has informed me that the fridge freezer and dishwasher are nolonger working properly.
    Before I purchased the fridge freezer I sent them a link to the new item to make sure they were happy with it. They were fine with it apart from it opened the wrong way, hinges on right not left. Most appliances are right hinged but with reversible doors. They also insisted that I dispose of the old fridge and get it installed. It's a stand alone appliance. Installed was an extra £80. On arrival of item they have informed me that it is smaller than the other one and they were not happy. Had I have done like they would of had a secondhand one. They are only one person.
    Do I now have to arrange changing the doors over?

    As with the dishwasher do I need to arrange installation and disposal? should I do like for like that would be a secondhand one too.

    I have bought brand new, technically they get an upgrade.

    What does your tenancy agreement say about these items?

    They're not something you have to repair or replace automatically (although I do).
    It would be very unlucky for a fridge freezer and dishwasher to both stop working at the same time.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


      The hinges don't need to be changed over, but it's fairly easy thing to do (takes around 20mins), you should arrange for the disposal of the old items, (but I'm sure if you left it out the scrapman will come and take it for free). The dishwasher if it is built in or a freestanding unit then again easier process then changing the doors on a fridge.


        I have got very exhausted with this tenant over the years. Nothing is easy with them.


          Again, What does your tenancy agreement say about these items?
          or the inventory.


            Vicky did you check that the f/freezer and dishwasher weren’t working ? You didn t just take tenant s word for it? Who can t push a f/freezer in to place ? £80 sounds weird . I don t know where yr based but u only have to leave a broken appliance on the street in London for 2 hours and miraculously it disappears.


              I agree you should see for yourself they don't work properly. My (fortunately previous) tenant swore blind the cooker didn't work properly but it miraculously cured itself every time I was there. Then they tore the seal off and said it was dangerous. Seal replaced and the cooker is still working fine for the current tenant. £80 seems a bit steep to put the plug on the socket and switch it on. Some tenants just aren't worth the hassle, S21 if you've had enough of them.

                Once you're certain that your deeds are correct on the matter and not in conflict with his deeds, you can send him a letter demanding that he remove his fence and reinstate yours or one substantially similar. If he doesn't comply, you would send a Letter Before Action and ultimately sue him for the...

                On my Deeds, it shows which fence is my responsibility, and I have always maintained it.

                My new neighbour acquired the property next door, and later, without my knowledge or prior agreement, removed the fence completely, and replaced it with a lower one.

                You could look in an area that has companies nearby or where you have relatives who could manage it on a holiday let/Airbnb basis for you whilst you're away. You would need to pay them for cleaning/laundry/advertising and managing bookings etc plus whatever profit is appropriate, but you would still...

                Does anyone know how I might find myself a flat to live in that I can later sublet in its entirety?

                I am wanting to spend 6 months at a time in Canada and then 6 months in the UK and repeat this - while keeping the same UK address and subletting the UK flat while I am away in Canada each...

                Do this........ get all your ' ducks in a row ' before you do anything in court, the courts can be harsh with those who do not have all the facts/paperwork in place, it does not come down to right or wrong, but what you can prove.

                I think its highly unlikely that they are going to take you to court for illegal eviction with the accusation that you deprived them of the ability to run the cannabis farm. Just take possession and move-on.

                I have a tenant on a long lease (12 months to run), I need to evict them with a section 8 which will be focused on the fact they were running a cannabis farm. Tenants seem to have run off, haven't heard from them in 3 weeks. If as you might expect they don't contest the eviction, will I definitely...

                There is an isolator switch behind the microwave oven in my mother's flat and if she closes the microwave door a bit hard, it moves back just enough to turn off the switch. Is it possible that something similar happened with your fridge?...

                I had a call from a tenant stating the central heating controller has stopped working. On arrival at the house, the controller was blank. I removed it from the wall and put an electrical tester on the backing plate, it had no power. I ask my electrician to attend the house, he arrived when I was there....
