    landlord wont repair washing machine

    I Have Been Renting From My Landlord For 4 Months Now And My Built In Washing Machine Is Now Not Working Properly.

    The Washing Machine Was At The Property When I Moved In And Is Built Into The Kitchen, It Has A Matching Door.

    My Landlord Says He Is Not Responsible For The Repair Because He Is Renting The House Unfurnished.

    Is This Right

    No It Certainly Isn't. He Has to Fix It. (Not Relevant That It's Built In By The Way)

      thats what i thought.

      he says the contract says that only items on the inventory is his and that there is not an inventory meaning he has no responsibility for any of the furnishings.

        Thats a recent piece of case law.Although it has nothing to do with washing machines the principal is the same responsability to repair

          Hello fellow LandlordZone members,

          I am working on a product/platform that will give buy to let landlords/property investors increased control and financial clarity over their portfolios. There is limited research into the actual behaviour and knowledge within this area and I would therefore...

          I'm still trying to let the flat with the green tiles. This was let in its un-renovated state for £700 in 2010, so I think £850 is reasonable now. Trouble is that there is an equivalent flat here in Reading that has been on the market since November for £795. Another one has just gone on the market...

          Is that a storage heater in the hallway? I don't see the favoured words GFCH in the details - this could well be the problem of having it on the market in January.
          Could last tenants have left because they could not face another winter there?

          lol. I recently completed a complete refurb in magnolia, only for the boss to decide (in collusion with the 'selected' tenant) that it all needed to be shades of grey and a pink bedroom for her daughter,

          of course I did as I was told, grumbling all the way, BUT to be honest (and as she...

        • Rent late because of “Hacked bank account”
          Katelydstep
          late Rent after only 3 months (just after Xmas - odd that!) and my LA firstly didn’t inform me, and now say that it’s because the tenants have had their bank account hacked.
          would it be confrontational for me to ask for a letter of confirmation from the bank re the hacking issue?. Have had...

          I did check with a solicitor. The advice was that until I was out of pocket I could do nothing. The AST stood. If tenants had not paid rent and I had made some form of loss I could sue agent for it. I was not happy at the time. Fortunately tenant was OK. I now tell everyone locally never ever to use...

          Credit ref checks are only required for signatory Ts or Guarantor, but as LL I would credit ref anyone wishing to reside in my property. Explain to LL/LA in writng (dated) that you apply as sole T, but you wish your named partner/bf as permtted occupier. LL can reject your T applicaiion.

          Hi there I am in a bit of a weird situation. Basically, 1 month ago I handed my section 21 notice to the tenant to leave the property. the T should be moving out of the property mid February. The T has always paid on time and kept the house in a good and clean condition. However when I checked to see...
