We have just moved into an apartmetn 2 months ago and in the lease contract these are the exact words stated:
FURNISHINGS: The following furnishings or appliances will be provided by Landlord:
Electric Stove, Refridgerator, Washer and Dryer. Tenant shall return all such items are the end of the lease term in a condition as good as existed at the beginning of the lease term, normal wear and tear expected.
However since we moved in we have yet to be furnished a Washer and Dryer, we are currently renting one which is cosing us around $200 out of our pocket. When asking the landlord who lives below us. He tries to find loopholes and states that they are allowing us to use their washer and dryer in their basement upon asking them (its behind locked doors).The lease does not state that this is a coop washer and dryer facility and that it was furnished to us. Does he have a legal obligation to provide us with one? What can I do? By the way the $200 is per a month that we are paying to rental place.
