Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
On what basis is he saying it needs to be new and not used please?
If you had broken a new oven then yes, you would be expected to replace with a new one.
But you only need to replace like with like,
This means, for example, if the oven would have a 15 year old life then it would only have 5 years remaining.
Therefore you can replace it with a like for like, that is another one 10 years old.
The Landlord can't benefit from your accident and indeed if it went to Court, a Judge wouldnt award a new one.
It would be like with like or similar.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
