blog_photo_dishwasherWhen renting a property, appliances like air-conditioners, gas heaters and dishwashers are included for tenant use.

If an appliance breaks down, it will need repairing or replacing as soon as possible. Failure to do so can result in compensation being owed to the tenant.

Sometimes a property is supplied with an appliance that may not be in the best of condition (like a dishwasher). The owner may instruct that the tenants can use it but it if breaks down, it won’t be replaced. However if an appliance is supplied for the tenancy it must be repaired or replaced should it break down! Therefore if it is supplied, it must be there as a permanent appliance.
