Replacing Old Appliance
My lease states that "oven/range, refrigerator, ..." are provided for the apartment. Several years after moving in (well over 20 years ago) my husband and I decided to replace the refrigerator ourselves because it was not operating properly. I still have the old refrigerator. Now, the 15+ year old refrigerator needs to be repaired/replaced and the NEW landlords say that since we bought the refrigerator it is my property and my responsibility to repair/replace it. The old landlord made sure to let the new landlords know that it was my property and the new landlords say they have something in writing, but I was never supplied this amendment to the lease nor did the landlord have the decency to let me know there would be a problem with this later on.
Since the lease states that a refrigerator is supplied with the apartment and since I still have the old one, AM I responsible for repairing/replacing the refrigerator?
Thank you for your help.
