Customer Question

I moved into a rented property 16 mths ago. I was told I had to buy the washing machine for a pond from the land lord and I would be responsible for it which I did. I moved in and from day one the washing machine did not work, they had sold me a broken machine.
I had to buy a new washing machine, and put the old one in the garden, and informed the letting agent that the washing that the washing machine they sold me did not work, that I had to buy a new one, and that I would not be held responsible for the broken machine.
I have now moved out and the agent is insisting I am responsible for the broken machine and need to pay to get it moved.
I explained it did not work from day one that they have sold me a broken and potentially dangerous machine.
where do I stand.

Thank you for your question and welcome.

My name is AJ and I will assist you.

Technically this is your washing machine and you will be under an obligation to leave the property free and clear.

However if you have your deposit back there is not really alot they can do about it.

Most Council offer a bulky waste collection service so it may also be worth looking into just leaving the machine out the front of the property and arranging for the council to collect it.

Do you have your deposit back?

The alternative is you can say that you were deliberately mis sold a faulty washing machine. If you made to pay out the cost of removing the washing machine you will sue the landlord for any costs associated with this and report him to the local Trading Standards for deliberately misleading you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
