Scottish law - bought a flat with faulty white goods
2 replies 143 views
Can anyone advise the legal position please. Son has just bought his first flat. Moved in last Friday only to discover fridge/freezer and dishwasher not working and/or damaged. Accord to a document called "Standard Conditions" which they received from their solicitors (which runs into 23 pages) it states that "the seller undertakes that any appliances ... will be in working order commensurate with age at date of settlement"
He got 5 working days to put in a claim, which he did. This morning the seller's solicitors replied that "as far as their client was concerned, the appliances were in working condition when she left the flat" and will not enter into any further dialogue.
Any advice gratefully received. Thankyou

(this is why When I sold I said I will leave appliances but they do not constitute a part of the sale).
He could get his lawyer to write a letter to the sellers lawyer who will then charge his client to write another letter and ‘make it go away’.
