To whom it may concern.
A group of 3 students just rented a house. The house was unfurnished and the landlord agreed to furnish the house. The house has 2 double bedrooms and a single bedroom. However the landlord bought 3 single beds for all the rooms. Hence he bought a very old sofa. We are requesting him to replace the two single beds to the standard double beds for the double rooms and the old sofa. However he is not complying. What can we do?

You probably can’t force the landlord to buy anything more. Since you’re only three people and by default you can’t get other people to live in with you, without the agreement of the landlord, 3 single beds suffice the living needs of all tenants.  In this case, you may only negotiate, but can’t legally oblige the landlord to do so. At least, not without an additional agreement in writing that specifies double beds are going to be purchased for the double bedrooms.  You should have negotiated and agreed these terms with the tenancy agreement, now you only have the landlord’s word, and that is hardly something you can rely on.
