From the Forum: Should a Landlord Allow a Tenant to Install a Portable Washing Machine?

Photo by Gellinger


    A tenant is asking for permission to connect a portable washing machine to a sink in the unit, but the landlord has concerns. Is the risk of flooding so high that it isn’t worth making the concession? If the landlord does allow the tenant to proceed what rules and protections should the landlord put into place?

    Please chime in with your advice.
