Resolved Question:

Good evening,
My tenant has just messaged me to say the oven in my property has "blown up", and is not working. Is it my responsibility to replace it?

Good evening. Who supplied the appliance?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did. It was there when she moved in. She was going to bring her own, but the kitchen is integrated
Expert:  Alice H replied 1 year ago.
It is the landlords responsibility to keep gas and electrical appliances in good working order and safe; so if the oven, which you supplied, has indeed broken then you would normally be responsible for repair or replacement unless the tenancy agreement says otherwise.
