      Interesting that it depends on expectations based on tenants - so couple with 10 screaming kids under 12 would be expected to "wear 'n tear" more that one quiet single 65-yr old spinster...

      Which is yours??

        Furnishings in a furnished apartment

        Hello everyone,

        I read through (some of admittedly - there were over 100 replies and I got a bit lost!) a thread that dates back to 2007 with regards to what constitutes a furnished/unfurnished apartment.

        As I will (eventually) be a non-resident landlord (am currently working through the tax/HRMC info), and unlikely to be returning for a few years - apart from periodic returns to see my family, I'd be quite happy to leave behind kitchen utensils such as plates; pans; cutlery; kettle; toaster etc.. my question is - if a plate (or other item) were to be broken, would it be up to me to replace it?

        From what I gather, this would be the case but just want some clarity. As a first time landlady to be, I thought it would be 'nice' for me to leave such things for my tenants to use. None of them are particularly expensive/of any sentimental value to me and I don't expect (perhaps I am being naive) tenants to have a full complement of kitchenware!

        What are your thoughts on this? Is it more hassle than its worth? Can I write a clause in the AST that says that tenants will have to replace at their own cost certain items?

        Thanks in advance for your responses

          Just have a full & complete inventory done at start & end of tenancy.. following the standard processes good (ah, but how to find one..) agents and sensible landlords follow...

          Suggest also lots of photos or video..

            Furnished or unfurnished

            What are the relative advantages and disadvantages of letting a place furnished or unfurnished? Am in the process of letting out a flat and budget is short so unfurnished seems a good idea. Also tenants who've moved their own furniture in may stay longer. Incidentally It already has white goods, microwave, and built in wardrobes -does that mean it is technically part furnished?

              Rent statement, "empty"means has been to paint the walls, this is it. No carpets, curtains or white goods. Have little or no demand for unfurnished property market in the short-term AST.

                Several largely similar questions on separate threads have been merged into this thread (hence the repetitive nature of answers).
