Does anyone know what “furnishing not specified” means legally? Thats what is said in the (professional letting agents’) ad. Our tenancy agreement does not state whether the property is furnished or unfurnished. We were given no inventory, despite our asking for one (sadly by phone 3 years ago so there is no record). We took our own inventory but have replaced most of it (several large items) since as they were not fit for use. If we take the lot with us, can they withhold our deposit? As I say neither we or they have any records of what was in the house before we moved in, so it’s a case of our word against theirs.
What is the legal standpoint here? Does the lack of inventory mean they can’t argue or can I expect a long, drawn out affair over a couple hundred quid’s worth of furniture?
