A: If your Ohio landlord removed washers and dryers from your rental property without notice and has been unresponsive to your attempts to communicate, you have several potential courses of action. Begin by carefully reviewing your lease agreement to ascertain whether the appliances are explicitly listed as part of the rental amenities. If so, this can serve as significant evidence in your favor. Keep a record of your communication attempts, such as emails and phone call logs, to demonstrate your efforts to address the issue. Sending a written notice to your landlord referencing the missing appliances and the lease clause can help convey your concerns.
