Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019

We fully refurbished the flat 2 years ago after the purchase.
The tenant now leaving, but a year after moving in we were told at an annual inspection that the washing machine had broken and they had got rid of it and purchased their own.
We were never told of the breakdown or removal.
When we arrived at the flat during their term of notice to leave we found what looked like the original washing machine still in situ, the dishwasher which was also supposed to have broken down was still there.
Not the replacement spare which we had in a store cupboard as we were told told.
We won’t go into the damage in the property.
We feel that they have tried to get away with the dishwasher in recent weeks even boasting to their friends, but got caught out.
How do we stand on the washing machine? It was less than 3 years old!
We were not informed of breakdown or removal, gave no consent. The contract states no removal of fixtures. Also replacement of ‘ like for like .
They go on the 15 th…….opinions welcome.
