as he owns the cooker i would imagine it was up to the landlord, depending on how the glass came off-did you hit it etc or did it just fall off


check your tenancy agreement as it should be in there

It should state in your contract who is responsible. I would say he is as any rented furnished/part furnished properties' contracts usually allows for a reasonable amount of wear and tear.

I assume from your post that the oven was in place when you moved in, in this case he has a responsibility to maintain and repair or replace if needed due to fair wear and tear not if you have been negligent.

The Act states that where a short lease of less then seven years or periodic tenancy is in place then the landlord is responsible:

(b) to keep in repair and proper working order the installations in the dwelling for the supply of water, gas, electricity and for sanitation (including basins, sinks, baths and sanitary conveniences) but not other fixtures, fittings and appliances for making use of the supply of water, gas or electricity, and

The legislation still applies even in this case the landlord has a legal responsibility to maintain the building to include all appliances in place when you moved in and it does not matter who was managing the accommodation as he owns the building!

I take it the seal holding in the glass has worn away
as long as the glass is ok just get some high temperature oven sealant and dodge it back in

should cost no more than £25

It is your landlord's responsibility to maintain it as the cooker belongs to him.
I don't know if it's gas or electric, but your landlord should have an annual gas safety check done on the property and this should also include gas appliances that belong to the landlord - so if the cooker is gas then this should also have been checked. Legally, you should have a copy of the gas cert. My tenants have one, I get one and the company who carry out the service keep one.
If it's electric, then by law it doesn't need to be checked unless you live in a HMO (House of Multiple Occupancy).
