aircon servicing

Post by madfysh » Mon, 01 Nov 2010 9:22 am

In the Tenancy Agreement, it was stipulated that a copy of the aircon servicing report needs to be forwarded to landlord for record keeping. In the event that this is not so, what are the repercussions?

In the event that it isn't done, then you can be held liable for the replacement of the entire aircon unit if the LL decides to shaft you and claim after you move out, that the aircon is spoilt. This is a common ruse so don't fall foul of the T/A and give them a reason to take advantage of you.

Reminds me of a similar bind I got into back in SG in the mid 90-s

I took over a flat from a colleague mid-3-year-tenancy as he was leaving (yeah me as a junior got a mega-chick-magnet of a condo on Mt. Sophia for free :-D). It was cheaper for my employer to give it to me as a new arrival than break the remaining lease.

Anyway, most of the buttons were broken on the oven. But there was a clause in the lease (repeated verbally by the agent when I moved in), that I had to turn the oven on every 3 months, 'so damage would not be caused to it'.

Well of course I was too busy working my nuts off and parting like hell. And when I came to leave? Well, the oven buttons were broken, so clearly the oven was ruined as there was way I could have turned it on, and so I had to pay for it's replacement despite never having touched it.
