    Landlord needs to replace broken appliance?

    Hello.

    Am I obliged to substitute a dishwasher when it breaks? I would not ask this question for hobs or fridge, but the DW is not essential for living; that is why I am in doubt.

    What does the law say?

    Thank you.

    What did you present to the Tenant in your ad and viewing when they took the place? If they are paying rent with the expectation of that item, then you should repair or replace. If you told them it was old and was likely to die and not be replaced, then no problem. I am not a lawyer but think that this issue would fall under Consumer Protection / Misselling / Misdescription.

    Also, what was listed in your contract and inventory and what did the LL agree to look after?

    This dishwasher presumably needs electricity (as well as water), so there must also have been some plan of yours, however minimal, about safety checks?

    This is why I no longer provide white goods (unless part of a fitted kitchen).
