What is termed as a unfurnished flat when renting?

Will be renting a unfurnished 2 bed flat, however, no curtain poles are fitted to the property. Need to know whether there are any guidelines or rules as to what qualifies as unfurnished. Have been provided with fridge freezer and washing machine.

  • Simply put, its unfurnished so wont have any furnishings, maybe no white goods, i.e. cookers, washing machines etc.

  • In London and nearby unfurnished generally means that white good are included but no soft furnishings. That can include curtains, however you might expect curtain rails to attach curtains to as they are normally fixed to the wall. The landlord probably won't want you to drilll holes in the wall so speak to them and see if you can compromise.

  • Regarding your PM: I believe it’s on an agent by agent basis. You could search Google for a single point of reference however I am not sure if one exists.

  • It usually means no furniture such as beds, sofas, free standing storage etc......

  • I would expect it to certainly mean no major items of furniture - sofas, beds, wardrobes, but also no smaller items like crockery etc too. It's a flexible term so depends on the landlord and property.

  • In my own experience I have come to accept unfurnished flat as one with no Bed, matress, TV. But must have the white goods such as cooker/oven, extractor hood in the kitchen and nothing else in the property. Curtain Poles or curtain do not have to be provided
