    Too vague. Are you a landlord, tenant, hotelier, caterer, or bed-and-breakfast owner?

        So, no- you are not obliged to provide cooking facilities. However, you are obliged to provide (and repair) supply installations for gas (if connected), electricity, and water; and also drainage. See section 11 of Landlord and Tenant Act 1985.

          Jeffrey, surely you're not suggesting a landlord would dream of providing drugmaking facilities for the tenant!!!:

          "you are not obliged to provide coking facilities"

            Oops. I meant facilities for producing smokeles fuel, obviously.

              That's a shame, "coking facilities" sounded so much more exciting!

                If the properety in question is a HMO, you DO need to provide cooking facitilties; its in the HMO regs.

                So if you have 3 sharers + (unrelated), even if they are friends, you must provide a cooker and suitable kitchen. Families do not count.
                All posts in good faith, but do not rely on them

                      As the supplies of "cheap" North sea gas are now running low, the reason that the entire country was converted from "Town" to "Natural" gas possibly no longer applies, thus we may well have to to change back to town gas in due course. When this happens, coking facilities (plus washers and scrubbers) will most certainly be necessary to produce the town gas that the country will need!

                      P.P.
                      Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

                        Plenty of scrubbers around: see Max Mosley's little friends, most weekly "Chat" magazines, Heather Mills (allegedly, M'Lud), etc.
