Hi, Just found a new apartment in Dublin, we will be signing the lease next week.
Its perfect but we do not have a freezer just a very small freezer box within the fridge, unsuitable for three country girls freezing mammys dinners from home! We asked could we get a freeezer and the landlord said other tenants never asked for one but they were willing to get us one provided we paid half the price. They said a big-ish freezer will cost in and around 200 euro although so we each pay about 30 euro each. The landlord will then keep the freezer when we move out which i think is about cheeky! I was just wondering is this normal, tenants and landlords splitting the price of something, surely its the landlords job to provide a proper freezer or are we screwed because technically we have a small freezer box in the fridge?
Also there is no coffee table, no proper tv stand just a feeble, breakable looking desk, no bed side locker, just a wardrobe in one room (would like some drawers), and would like one more armchair as there is just room for 3 people to sit down comfortably although i know its not a necessity!
On daft it says its fully furnished, does that mean the above list should be provided? I would appreciate opinions of what I am entitled to ask for before signing the lease, the landlord is lovely and she is giving us a good deal so I don't want to come across rude.
