Hello. I have a property fitted with integral fridge and dishwasher, both of which have broken down. Assuming they have expired due to fair wear & tear do I have to repair/replace them or am I legally able to tell the tenant it's up to them to have them repaired. Alternatively, am I at liberty to remove the items leaving empty spaces for the tenant to supply their own? The agreement is assured shorthold from the RLA site. At start of tenancy neither party specified liability for these items.
Thanks for your help in advance.
