Hi, I am a new landlord and I am looking for some advice on my current situation.

My tenants moved in four days ago and are saying that they want me to provide and pay for plumbing for their washing machine. There is a gap in the units however no plumbing. As a landlord am I obliged to do this for them? They signed the tenancy agreement and the house is exactly the same as when they signed, according to my agent they assumed there would be plumbing however at no point was I asked if there was.

I just want to know if I am obliged to do this for them? From what I have found so far online I dont think that I am, as the house is safe gas wise, electrically wise and structurally.

Please help as I am new to this and dont know where I stand with this.

Thanks in advance!
