Spare parts no longer available. What to do?

Post by akashv1987 » Mon, 25 Nov 2019 11:21 pm


We are about to move out in a few weeks after staying in our condo for two years. Getting straight to the point, I have a feeling that the agent is trying to squeeze as much money out of us as he can when we handover the house. I noticed that the bottom plastic shelf of the fridge has a crack in it from too much weight of the food.. the one that covers the vegetable box. The fridge is so old that I can’t even find the spare parts of it online.

What is the reasonable approach to handling this? Should I pay $50 and attempt to settle things? Will the minimum repair clause apply? Or will this come under wear and tear since there was no force applied . Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you.

Look up the depreciation rate for fridges on the IRAS website. Use that to counter that the fridge has a limited life. If the depreciation rate is 10 years (10%) and the fridge is for example 7 years old then I'd argue you owe 30% of the repair... or a new fridge...
