  • Furnished usually includes such things as kitchen appliances, carpets, curtains, beds and lounge furniture. Some landlords might include more, it will be down to the individual.

  • "Furnished" tends to vary from one landlord to another, its worth double checking exactly what is included in the rental before finalising everything. Make sure you get it all down in writing.

  • Agree with both the previous comments. As a property inventory clerk company we get to see the various standards of furnished properties. Most will include applainces, lounge, dining and bedroom furniture as standard, although, as the previous answers said, it varies from Landlord to Landlord; we've seen properties with everything including bedding and kitchen cutlery! The important thing is to agree in advance by asking to see a copy of the inventory or a schedule of contents. If you are only concerned about the big items of furniture, then ask for (and agree before signing) a schedule of furniture to be included in the tenancy agreement document.
