I don't see what the problem is. When you sign a lease the use and included appliances/amenities are written down.
The appliances are
1. Included and covered by the L.L.
2. In the unit but not covered for repairs but free to use. Once broken tenant can buy their own.
3. Not included not on the premises.

No LL can change the lease while it's in its term. Once it ends with correct notice the LL can amend the lease.

My management company has never, ever replaced a broken appliance with a new one. I always get a "refurbished" one. After my 2nd preowned dishwasher and it still didn't work, it turned out that the idiots that replaced them connected the water supply to the cold water rather than the hot. No wonder my dishes were never coming clean.


Same management company that blamed ME when the rack in my bedroom closet fell down one day. Said I had too many clothes on it! Turns out when they sent the repairman that it had not been installed properly. I love when that happens and I get to pass that info on to the management company. :-)

I always buy new just because I dont want to deal with refurbished units. I buy entry level appliances. They aren't fancy but they work.

Yeah but truthfully there isn't much difference in price. The Sears Outlet for some reason has gotten expensive. It used to be a good bargain.
