    Oven repair LL or T

    Hey guys quick question is the oven considered a white good? and unless it states explicity in the tenancy agreement is the landlord responsible for repair?

    What is wrong with it?

    Generally L will be responsible unless it explicitly states L is NOT responsible (and then it depends how that is worded). May depend on the fine details (did T break it? is it fixable, or is it usable without being fixed?, is it dangerous?)

      Its not dangerous T says just stopped working all of a sudden, its not dangerous. Most law i have read states that white goods are not the responsibility of the landlord unless stated.

        Personally, I think if you provided it, you should repair it. I take it you've checked it's not pilot error, haven't you?

          Many people “think” the same.

          But there’s no case law to back it up.

            I know. That's why I said 'Personally, I think...'

              I must have missed the bit where the OP asked for opinions on what posters thought the law should be.

                If you rented the property complete with cooker then my view would be that it should be repaired as you the landlord would repair any other fixture. If the tenant left the property then a new tenant would have a cooker which did not work?

                  Very nice opinion, do you have any case law to back it up?

                    Not according to Shelter.

                      Is cooker on the Inventory?
                      Gas or electric?
                      What is wrong with it?
                      Cost of repair?

                      IMO T must have means of cooking a wholesome meal, so tech not white goods, like a w/m.

                        Nice opinion once again, but not according to any law I’m aware of.

                        (I’d be fascinated to know the legal definition of “wholesome”!)

                          Sarcastic so and so. Posts reported.

                            Just like many other public forums, these LLZ forums allow for people to express opinions. It is also often common for people asking questions to not be aware of all the ramifications and so opinions offered may not necessarily relate directly to the original question. Post #4 is clearly an opinion and makes no mention of any legal requirements, making post #7 unnecessary.
                            I also post as Mars_Mug when not moderating

                              Is the oven part of a freestanding cooker or fixed into the kitchen?
                              When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
                              Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).
