I have recently moved into a flat which was supposed to be rented part furnished. When I did the viewings the previous tenants showed me the furniture that was meant to be staying in the property and I was fine with it.
In real life, when I moved in, I discovered all sorts of clutter like old mattresses and moulded linen, electrical devices, rusted utensils, broken furniture etc. which were taking up the whole space. I asked the landlord to remove some which were not in use and he refused.
In addition, I heard from the agency that there is not going to be an inventory for this tenancy.
I just want to ask if anyone has ever been in that place, what am I supposed to do?
Would you advise me to get rid of some of this clutter as long as they are nowhere recorded?
Can the landlord prove that some staff had been in the property in the first place?
It is really unfair for me to pay for a loft in the flat when this is only serving as a storage for the landlord’s stuff.
