Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020

My daughter is just about to move into a shared house with some friends for her second year of university. The friends have already moved in & discovered some issues – a broken window in a bedroom, TV & toaster missing & “extreme” mould in the bathroom.
At first they thought that the house had been broken into (smashed window) & TV stolen but upon contacting the letting agent they have been told that the landlord has removed the TV.
They say that they will replace the toaster, but don’t have to provide a TV. I don’t understand if this can be right – the TV is on the inventory (as well as toaster) and it’s a furnished, student let?
At first the letting agent seemed very disinterested in the smashed window and mould, but now say they will get that looked at. But say the TV won’t be coming back.
Any advice please.
