If you arrange it yourself where would you get it removed to that doesn't cost you storage fees?

The idea was to pay someone to remove and dispose of it. What other option is there if the management company take no action?

I'm hoping the threat will force them into doing the thing they're obligated to do anyway.

I don't think you can get away with disposing of it in the first instance. You need to give multiple written warnings with decent time frames. Document everything.

Igor wrote:Advice needed. We moved into our new rented place two weeks ago today. The house was furnished but as we already have our own nice sofa, we requested that the existing sofa be removed - this was agreed and is in the tenancy agreement.

The sofa is still here. A giant leather corner monstrosity. We've taken it apart but it's taking up a large part of our living room, and blocking one of the windows. The landlord is based in Canada so has a management company running things. Repeated phone calls to the management company have been met with excuses. 'Mark isn't in the office right now, he'll call you back.' 'Ah yes, we're working with our contractor to get it sorted.'

Another email sent on Thursday, no response. I'm planning on emailing again Monday afternoon if they haven't come back, telling them that as removal of the sofa was part of the tenancy agreement, we will be arranging removal and disposal and invoice them if it isn't resolved.

Any issues with that, given the sofa isn't ours?


Leave it out the front and tell them to pick it up.

I've put an offer in on three houses in the last month, and two of them seemed to have quite high asking prices based on the fact the same type of house in the same street had sold for 10-15k less in the last 6 months, but both of them ended up going for the asking price. Nothing in the area stays on the market for much more than a week which would probably suggest the asking prices are low, but I have this mentality when it comes to buying anything where I don't want to pay more if something has gone for cheaper recently, and it's really hampering my efforts to get a house :fp:

I think you're right.

Why not get it delivered to the estate agents office!? :slol: :slol:

There could be many reasons for significant differences in prices like that. Could be a nice patio area, brand new kitchen, loft conversion, bigger size, extra bedroom, modern v old etc.
