    free quotation domestic appliance repair


    does anyone know the contact details of a company that will give a quote for fixing a broken appliance (e.g. washing machine) but will not charge unless you actually have the work done?

    I used a company who did this for a property in London a year or so ago, but I have stupidly lost the name/contact details and cannot find them again despite internet searches etc.


    What's this about?

    Is the washing machine in a tenanted property? Are you a landlord or agent? If yes to both questions, why are you wasting time like this?


      Further details - repair or buy new machine?

      I am landlord. Machine is in a tenanted property. Machine is 15 months old. I want to see if it is better to pay for repair or to buy a new machine. I don't want to call out someone to repair it and get charged e.g. £170 when I could buy a new machine for £200.

      Why do you think this is 'wasting time'?

        I would endeavour to have the machine fixed PDQ to keep my tenants happy and ultimately me. (Also less landfill.)

        I would simply call the manufacturer's service line NOW and arrange a date and time which is suitable for both the engineer and the tenant/myself.

        Remember, this repair is tax deductible.


          Do you not have a copy of the invoice from the last time you used the said company? You should've kept it for your accounts.

          If you can't find it might I suggest the local paper? The paper usually has a section offering services for the home and many of them state free call out!

            Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

            Sarah's right of...

            Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

            I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

            There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
            That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

            About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

            I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

            I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

            No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.
