Hi, I accidentally broke the washing machine’s door handle (tried opening the washing machine after it locked). If I get it repaired at my own expense, do I still have to inform the landlord of the accident and the repair or can I go ahead and hire a firm to repair it without notifying them? Thanks
Just do it If my tenant had such a repair done , I would be happy
Inform the a landlord as a courtesy
We always ask our tenants to keep us updated
He may use someone in particular so you may get a better price
Thanks, I have emailed my estate agency
If I were the landlord I would be very reassured to realise that I had such a responsible and honest tenant.
Tell the landlord and offer to get the repair sorted yourself. Get your own quotes for repair in case landlord insists that you use a specific person/firm (I don’t believe a landlord can) and their quote is expensive.
