    OK, so I started renting a property on Tuesday. An inventory was done on the property and the electric shower is on there and listed as "to be maintained by tenant". The problem is the the shower does not work, it does not heat the water.
    I rang my letting agency who also maintain the property, who have told me that it was probably put as "to be maintained by tenant" because it was faulty.

    My question is - dam I really expected to pay to have the shower fixed/replaced when it was broken from before I signed my rental agreement? How can I be expected to maintain something that doesn't work?

    Any info needed - Let me know.

    Many thanks
