Fridge In Rented Property

Recommended Posts

Landlord is prevaricating and being awkward about replacing it --its an integrated one and may take up to 2 /3 weeks and and they won't do anything to help in the meantime -

Can anyone tell me what the law is about supplying a fridge -? I'm paying £1 k a month rent ?

Ouch -do you get a kick out of being rude ? I have no intention of involving the " police " or " solicitors " just wonderered what the landlords obligations were -have you thought of taking a crash course in being a bit more kind ?

3 weeks isn't reasonable, we recently had a problem with our fridge our landlord replaced it the same day he was notified, ok ours isn't integrated.

Personally I think that he should either give a discount on the rent for those few weeks because of the inconvenience, or provide something temporary to tide you over.

Whats a cheap secondhand fridge? £50 if that.

An electrical hazard and probably illegal if you are a landlord as it hasn't got a certificate. (Sorry, the rest of what you said I agree with totally, the LL should just buy a new one - and now)

+1. Last place I lived the fridge-freeze gradually died. When I summoned up the courage to contact the landlord (in Switzerland), he accepted my suggestion I go ahead and order a new one and reclaim the cost from him. He also gave a budget, which was just right for the model I'd already provisionally selected (online).

Living without a fridge for longer than the time it takes to order and take delivery is not acceptable when you're paying good money for a place that includes one in the spec.

Just one other option: sometimes a fridge can be fixed and work well. Maybe wouldn't hurt to look for a repairman.

I'm renting a fully-furnished house, & I just use my own fridge-freezer, rather than whats already in the house.

Don't know about any fridge laws unfortunately, but even new ones don't cost much, in comparison to £1k rent a month !! ouch

Don't know about any fridge laws...

There aren't any. It simply boils down to whether the supply of a working fridge was included in the OP's tenancy agreement (probably the inventory). If so, then it's the LL's responsibility to fix or replace it (assuming that its failure was through normal wear and tear, not misuse by the tenant); if not, then it's up to the tenant to supply their own fridge.

I'd suspect that if it's in the inventory then it's the LL's responsibility even if the tenant was entirely responsible for wrecking it. Just that in that case, the LL should be able to demand the money back, or deduct it from the deposit.
