I know some of you guys are heavily involved in Real Estate, can you she some light on something I find bemusing.

When my girlfriend cooker broke down last year I suggested that she spoke to her landlord to fix it, however she told me that anything in the flat was her responsibility. To be honest I find this difficult to grasp, is it true that if the boiler breaks down in my new place I effectively could have to replace it? I still can't fathom how a tenant is responsible for any problems that are not caused as a result of their negligence.

Is there a way of making sure they are contractually obliged to maintain what is provided?

I am not familiar with current rent/lease regulations, but not too long ago I replaced an entire water heating system in an owned apartment that I rented because it was my responsibility, not the leasing person's. As far as I know, landlord should fix this or if she gets a new one, she takes it with her. However, we do not know the terms of the lease and if those terms were in conflict with the general regulations.

Given that laws tend to favor the person renting I can't see this happening.
