Hello. The first thing I must admit to is that I am a tenant rather than a landlord. But I thought you all might be able to help with my query anyway! :
I have just moved into a newly refurbished first floot flat. The main room in the flat has a large bay window that overlooks the residential street that I live on. When I was moving in, my landlord mentioned that this window didn’t have any blinds fitted, but he said once I was moved in, I could get in touch with him and he could arrange for the installation of the blinds.
However, when I did contact about the installation of the blinds, he then told me that he was expecting me to pay 50% of the installation of the blinds which amounts to £150. I note that this was quite unexpected as I naturally would have assumed that blinds are an integral part of a flat and as such these would be classed as a necessity and/or a maintenance cost and as such I would have expected the landlord to pay the full cost of the installation.
I am just wondering if anyone can offer any thoughts ot advice on this?
