My landlord has refused to provide a gas stove or run electric for my stove. Can he do this?

Plymouth, IN |

When we rented the house we are in, the landlord was not here. He was in Alabama. His mother rented the home to us, but his name is on the lease not her's. She told us to make a list of things that need to be done. So, we did. The biggest concern was the stove. The house has gas hook-up, but our stove is electric. When we asked her about it, she said that it was our problem. When we talked to him, he said he was never given the list. This list included the hook-up for the stove or a stove to use, among other things that need to be done. Now, she deny's everything and he says he never got the list. Is there anything we can do?

  1. In most states a LL is required to provide a stove. Talk to the local code enforcement officer.
