Can I keep a freezer in my cellar?

Hi,

I would like to keep a freezer in my cellar, which has a power socket linked to my apartment.

I have contacted my building manager but received no reply.

Do you know generally whether it is permitted to keep a freezer in your cellar?

Thanks!

You can keep the freezer in your cellar but you can not keep cellar in your freezer.

Double check your lease. If there is any restriction it will be mentioned there.

I need to read fewer thrillers. Read this as "can I keep a body in the freezer in my cellar."

Re: Can I keep a freezer in my cellar?

As said, check your lease. Also how close to your cellar is your property? Because constantly having to go up/down to the freezer can be a pain. I just have one flight of stairs to go down to our freezer in our house and it gets annoying sometimes when I have to get something out, then take the remainder back again to put back in the freezer.

Re: Can I keep a freezer in my cellar?

There might be other uses for a metered socket in a cellar but a freezer is still the most common and exactly the reason why it was put there in the first place.

In my old building, about half the residents actually had a wine fridge in the cellar. The freezer was only in one.
