My wife has just completed a house purchase which she is to let out.
The previous owners or their relatives (owner has moved into a care home) have left a number of tools and other items in the shed including an electric lawn mower and strimmer. The lawn mower is in working order as I used that to cut the grass.
We are debating whether to leave the tools there for a tenant to use or whether we would be better off removing them and leaving the tenant to supply their own. I’m err’ing towards removing them because if they go wrong or break she’ll have an implied liability to repair or replace.
This also raises the question as to whether we would need to the lawn mower PAT tested. In fact should we also get any supplied white goods PAT tested such as washing machine, fridge etc?
For reference, we’ve had the electrics tested and the old fashioned fuse box replaced with a consumer unit.
It would be interesting to know what others think.
