Dear RLA,
My tenants have only been in my property for 2 weeks. They told me that they have used the washing machine for 10 times without problem. The washing machine broke down yesterday. The washing machine is in the signed inventory and was in good condition. I want them to replace the washing machine. Can I claim it from their deposit now (withdraw part of the deposit from Deposit Protection Service now) to buy new washing machine (as I don't think it's repairable) ?
