    Can landlord let flat without space for kitchen appliances?

    Hi, I'm really interested in a flat on findaproperty.com but the photos show that there is no cooker , fridge or washing machine.

    I can live without a washing machine and I can afford a fridge & cooker but if there is no space for them then I won't bother renting it.

    Half of me is finding it hard to believe that a flat could be let without space for appliances! Especially in 2009!!

    Let me know, thanks!!

    L&T law does not demand appliance spaces, although housing standards might. Why not simply inspect the flat, to see for yourself?

      Sigh!

      And I remember when my Grannie bought my mum her 1st washing machine... And when she got central heating and swore she'd never make another coal fire... Within living memory people didn't have - indeed usually didn't expect - fridges, washing machines, dryers, microwaves etc. etc. etc...

      If a punter wants to rent it and a Landlord wants to offer it, fine. If either party doesn't want to play, guess they should go play elsewhere.

      I think you might be surprised to see the state of accommodation offered to - and taken - by those less fortunate (than me at least). Morally reprehensible possibly- against what morality I'm not sure, but legal definitely...

      Was it cheap??
