I am renting a house, the television I rented is broken, should I ask the landlord to repair it?


Recommended Posts

You rented a TV? It didn't come with house? 


 The condo I rent there are two TV's. Though I live here as a retiree I purchased a new one for the living room. The one that was in the condo was probably 10 ten years old.


You can ask the owner.

It doesn't hurt to ask but there's nothing forcing them to do it that I know of unless you're not locked in and they want to keep you as a tenant.

Of course ask him. When my TV broke my landlord bought a new one

It depends on what is written in your contract.

This is what is written in my rental contracts:

3.6. LESSOR represents and warrants that the domestic appliances and attachments are in good repair and are suitable for use by LESSEE for the purpose of the LEASE AGREEMENT. LESSOR also agrees to repair or replace any items domestic appliances and attachments at LESSEE’s reasonable request, that become damage so long as the damage is not caused by the negligence or wilful misconduct of LESSEE’s employee.


3.7. LESSOR represents and warrants that the furniture is in good repair and is suitable for use by LESSEE’s employee for the purposes of the LEASE AGREEMENT. LESSOR’S also agrees to repair or replace any item of furniture at LESSEE’s reasonable request, that become damaged so long as the damage is not caused by the negligence or wilful misconduct of the LESSEE.

As a Side note I have reduced the rental price of the apartment in Jada Beach condominium to 5,000tb a month on a 1 year contract.

Take a look at the website.

Hey mate,

If you don't ask, you don't get :)

I have always had good success by asking and saying I would pay for it and deduct the cost from the following months rent. Never had an issue. I suspect with most Thai landlords they have already spent your rent so won't have spare cash to replace things. :)

The condos I rented last November and March both had TVs go out. When I told the condo owners they replaced them with new ones. 

Every hole a goal.

Condoms kill boners. Save the boners.

Stop the Vagilantes.

I replaced the broken ones before on my three  condos  , Landlord responsibility for the replacement  otherwise if willfully broken , he/she pays .  After all most TV live up to 10 years , they don’t live forever . No big deal , tenant are only there for short or long term , Landlord should pay .

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
