It must specify in the insured short-term rental contract who is responsible for the repair of white goods. “Excellent piece, it makes it much clearer, you quote the relevant legislation. But you mention “White goods provided by the owner must be in a reasonable repair condition and in good condition” In simple terms, it is the products in your kitchen that were traditionally white before the modern world took over. So, appliances such as washing machines, fridge-freezers, dryers and dishwashers. I received a few emails from people asking for the details of “White Goods,” so I flooded my blood with caffeine to take on the challenge. Hold on to your hats, this will probably be the most incident-free trip of your life. However, before you jump for joy, you have a responsibility to ensure that white goods are safe in accordance with the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations, 1994. (Learn more about electrical safety for homeowners who buy to rent.) If the tenant is responsible for repairing the white goods and this is stated in the AST, I would recommend discussing this before the tenants sign the contracts. This will avoid problems if your tenants are unexpectedly informed that they are responsible for repairing/replacing white goods. It should be noted that tenants should not be held responsible for wear and tear or technical malfunctions beyond their control.

Although white goods are included in most rental properties, there is no obligation to provide them. The benefits of including white goods in your property include: My agent sent me a copy of the short-term lease signed by him and the tenant, which includes a clause that the white property has been “given” to the tenant and must be removed at the end of the tenancy. A copy of the agreement was not sent to me before the signing and now that I have raised objections, the agent and tenant refuse to remove this clause stating that I am legally obliged to absolve myself. Is “giving” a common practice? Moisture and mold in real estate cause one of the biggest disagreements between tenants and landlords. The tenant claims that the property is sensitive to moisture and the landlord says that the tenant does not ventilate the house properly. It`s important to determine if a tenant is reporting a persistent moisture and mold problem, but this often comes down to educating the tenant on how to prevent those problems in the first place. Provide a guide on preventing mold and moisture before the lease to minimize these problems and include a clause that encourages the tenant to take action. If you look in your kitchen, you`ll probably see appliances like a washer, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, and maybe a dryer. .
