Depending on the nature of local demand for rented property and own circumstances, landlords may find that they need to let residential property either fully furnished, part furnished (usually white goods only) or un-furnished (usually with the exception of carpets and curtains). If white goods are included in the let (cooker, fridge, freezer, washer, dishwasher, dryer) they should be PAT tested every twelve months. Also, if they go wrong during the tenancy, the landlord is responsible for either repairing or replacing the appliance, unless the fault was due to the negligence of the tenant. This also applies if a previous tenant left any appliances in the property, and the landlord did not remove them before he re-let the property – they are still the landlord’s responsibility. This responsibility cannot be contracted out
