I have just put down a holding deposit for a flat that I’m about to start renting. I love the flat and I definitely want to stay there, however, I have just found out that, contrary to the advert which states there is a “washer/dryer”, it actually just has a regular washing machine.
This has been very disappointing to find out as it will mean I have to spend more money than I had planned to on clothes drying related equipment such as a heated dryer. This may not seem such a big deal to some, but is quite pricey when you concider that this is an unfurnished flat and my first ever place on my own so I am having to buy everything from scratch.
Even if you ignore the money side of the issue, it dawned on me that surely this counts as false advertising which is illegal and presumably they are therefore obliged to provide me with the facilities advertised? Not 100% sure how the law around false advertising works but would really appreciate it if anyone could give me some advice on what would be the best course of action?
(just for reference the flat only has electric heating so I cannot use the radiators to dry my clothes, there are no communal dryers or washing machines and I have no outdoor area to dry my clothes)
