I'd go for one of those 'starter home' basic packs (IKEA used to do one...) it will at least give you an idea of what to supply.

How about buying one of those IKEA basic starter sets - if they still do them? Then you can bring all your own stuff over without having to debate about it. (Though I suppose you might decide you'd rather have the new stuff!)

snap, blackduck!

I'm renting a furnished flat whilst our home is undergoing some renovation. We have cutlery, crockery, glasses, kettle, pots and pans, casserole dishes, utensils, bread board, tray,toaster, kettle, iron, microwave, washer/dryer, fridge freezer - could try and find a complete list, but this was fairly standard for those I looked at.

You could trawl round the charity shops or pound shops for assorted crocks and cutlery - cheap pans too. You are supposed to provide them as it's furnished.

I've been trying to find a basic inventory but can't.

Santa - try Argos - £30.....

even bedlinen always gets me. My friend rented a fully furnished place and caught scabies from the bedlinen

ladymuck Mon 03-Jan-05 12:34:11

Deosn't it also depend on the rent? TBH £65 isn't that much when I look at the rentals prices around here, though I am in London.

JanH Mon 03-Jan-05 12:34:21

OMG fio

JanH Mon 03-Jan-05 12:34:59

£65 isn't the rent, it's the IKEA starter set!

I always remove stuff the previous tenants have helpfully left behind ... rubber gloves, washing up liquid, dusters etc. I know they're trying to be helpful, but I would find it so tacky to arrive in a house with used things.

ladymuck Mon 03-Jan-05 12:36:45

That's my point - I'm paying over £700 a month, so as a tenant I don't think that it is too much for my landlord to fork out £65 for something that will last my tenancy and beyond! However if the rent is only £200 a month or something I can see that iut would be different.
