Due to a tenant’s baby sock being stuck in the filter, the washing machine didn’t empty, and the kitchen got flooded which also caused water damage to the flat below.
The tenant denies responsibility saying where in the AST does it say he is responsible for cleaning the washing machine filter? Or adding salt to the dishwasher or cleaning the cooker extractor fans/change carbon filters for that matter. And he’s right – there’s no mention of this responsibility in the AST
Can a clause be added to all new ASTs to say that tenants are responsible for limited ongoing maintenance of white goods along the lines of the above?
This will prolong appliance lives and avoid unnecessary breakdowns and repairs. This has happened before and was just accepted as ‘one of those things’ but tenants surely have to accept some responsibility here. Does anyone have some sample wording that can be inserted?
Any and all suggestions gratefully received.
