    electrical appliances when letting property

    Do electrical appliances you provide to the tenant, have to be pat tested by law, before you let a property.

    No they don't.
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      Agreed; but just to point out that as landlord you are still responsible for the electrical safety of any such appliances, and Portable Appliance Testing is the only way you can be sure to cover yourself legally (never mind ensuring the tenant's safety)

        I posted elsewhere on here and feedback was a mix of its not worth it as nothing will happen (plus police will treat as a tenancy issue) and its worth doing to get a crime number.

        Not going to claim on insurance given excess etc. The fridge freezers value second hand / age considered probably...

        Our property was let part furnished however upon leaving the Ex. tenant took it upon himself to relieve us of the white goods and wooden blinds.

        The dishwasher, washing machine, 2 x fridge freezers and wooden blinds throughout were actually ones purchased when the property was our main...

        A 15 year old washing machine has almost zero value (and will have less when you move out).
        The landlord can only legitimately claim for their loss if you bin it.

        A mid range washing machine is about £350 (and they haven't changed much in price recently), and imagining one would...

      • Landlord refuses to sign inventory
        by Bumblebee3000
        We've recently rented a house that from the very start seemed badly taken care of - there were various problems like a mouldy washing machine/curtains, broken curtain rails, etc. When we arrived to meet the inventory clerk, we signed a 2-page document of handwritten inventory notes (we broadly agreed...

        Trust you've reported the thefts to police

        This is very helpful, MdeB, thank you. I will try to relax about the inventory now. In regards to the mould - the landlord has a letter from the curtain cleaning company stating that the mould has been "killed" during the cleaning. I actually spoke with the curtain cleaner when he was here...

        The process seems to have changed recently.
        The landlord claims from the deposit and that claim should have a summary of what they are claiming and why.
        You dispute that and then you both have one chance to explain your side of the story.
        But you do that with only access to what the...

        by Maymiss
        I am moving out of my rented home shortly, i have caused some damage which I notified the landlord of when it happened and they have recently visited to discuss the cost of repairs, which we have agreed. The landlord is now asking that I pay this money to them directly. It is not possible for the work...

        by jpkeates
        Every notice escalated to court is recorded and the figures published quarterly, so breaking out the s21 notices from the s8 shouldn't be complicated.

        Two of the links are to House of Commons research papers, to be fair!...

      • Section 21 issued with new tenancy
        by fmST1
        When a new tenant moves into a property, I get them to sign a section 21 so that if whatever reason things don’t work out, the necessary paperwork is already in place.
        I’ve never had a need to exercise this yet, but would it work?...
