    I put a condenser dryer in a cupboard in a flat, is there no handy cupboard?

    I only use a dryer for bedding and towels, the rest is line dried, you just have to pick the day. The exact same thread is on mumsnet, the consensus was how useless combined washer/dryers are.

    While drying clothes naturally in a house can cause condensation and hence black mould, this can be prevented by a dehumidifier or adequate ventilation. I don t believe that damp clothes drying with cause any health issues in healthy adults. Using a dryer is very un ecologically friendly. If you care for the environment or say you do, you would not want to be using a dryer.

    anyway washer/dryer combo s don t often work well. I had one - useless - so if there is no room for a separate dryer and washer there is only so much yr landlord can do. Another model of washer/dryer may not be better than what u have.

    You will find that the manufacturers instructions make clear that the maximum load for drying is much less than for washing, so yes, you do have to remove clothes first.

    In all probability there is nothing wrong with the washer-dryer and the landlord will be under no obligation to replace it. If the bathroom is fully tiled then I suggest drying clothes in there with the window partly open.

    Same here. We eventually bought a tumble dryer and stuck it in the garden shed.

    Buy a dehumidifier for £100. Works great and is better for your clothes.

    A washing line is useful in such circumstances

    If the appliance was provided by the LL/LA and it is not working then you should request to get it fixed, unfortunately inbuilt dryers and washing machines have this issue where you don't get both doing a great job without sacrificing on the other.

    If it's not possible to dry your clothes on a rack outside, the alternative which to put the clothes on a rack in the property with a dehumidifier and they will get drying in under 30-60mins and will also have benefits of lowering your costs of using the dryer. Just make sure you don't take too much of the moisture out of the air as this is bad. 45-55 humidity is ideal.

    Yeah I get what you're saying and unfortunately there is no space. But obviously a washer-dryer was on the inventory and advertised and if it's not working then do you think there is a chance the landlord will change it? In a 6 person house, everyone drying clothes on the stairs and everywhere else will surely cause damage to the house (and it really isn't healthy).

    Dryer not working

    Hi everyone (I'm a tenant not landlord but thought this would be the best place to ask)

    Essentially, we have a washing machine that comes with a dryer. However, the dryer doesn't work - it takes hours to dry clothes and you have to remove the vast majority of clothes from the initial wash for anything to get close to drying. What rights do tenants have to request a new dryer? And there is another issue of have damp clothes lying around the house - which isn't good for the house or health of people living in it.

    Interesting, but it sounds like the university is definitely exceeding its authority and a clued up student could easily challenge any sanction they tried to impose.

    Hi,

    I have a question to which I suspect I know the answer, but I'll ask it anyway.

    We live in a house whose garden backs onto other gardens. One of those houses is let to a group of students.

    The students are given to making noise in their garden, particularly...

    As Artful says, you'll need to read your contract with the letting agency to see how and when the contract can be terminated.




    It seems more likely that your friend signed a new 12 month fixed term contract in January than the the tenancy agreement having an abnormally...

    2 questions. I rent my BTL property through a letting agent. The current tenant has handed notice in. Am I right in saying I can now leave this letting agent?

    Second question, the.reason I'm leaving the agent is because a very good friend of mine would like to rent he property. If she wants...

    To conclude with an update:
    Landlords in this position strongly advised to speak to Home Office Landlord Visa section in the first instance. You many experience a 'to-ing and fro-ing' between that section and the Landlords 'Right to Rent' section. See what they both say. They should both be advising...

    The latest government figures for possession claims have been published, which cover January through March 2022.
    That's post Covid restrictions and would probably include most of the last of the Covid backlog.

    And there's no sign of the massive wave of evictions and resulting mass...

  • Reply to Section 21 During Contract Period
    by DPT57
    I think there's some date confusion above. If your 6 month fixed term tenancy began on 9 December, then it ends on 8 June. If you leave by midnight on that day then there will be no penalty or advance notice required. If you stay beyond this time a statutory periodic tenancy will arise. S5(5) of the...
