Hi, chasing some thoughts on a new tenant at one of my properties. A day after the couple moved in they contacted my PM saying the cooktop does not work as the hobs do not get hot. It was apparent that they do not know anything about induction cooktops so we explained to them how they worked, ie it heats the pan by electromagnetism. It still did not work and it turns out that none of their cookware is compatible with induction cooktops as all their pans are aluminium. They then argued that the induction cooktop should have been disclosed when they viewed the property and because it wasn't I am in breach of the tenancy agreement and have to remedy the situation. I've rented that house to a few tenants over the past five years and this is the first time anyone has raised any issue with the cooktop. However, I can empathise with the tenant so I offered to purchase a 4 piece cooking set from Ikea to remain with the property. This did not satisfy them, suggesting that rather than the Ikea set, I should either replace the cooktop with a standard electrical or purchase a cooktop set equivalent to what they currently have. My PM discussed the situation with the WA department regulating tenancies and was advised that an induction cooktop is not something that is normally required to be disclosed. As long as the cooktop is functioning, there is no breach of contract nor am I required to provide a cooking set. My PM communicated that back to the tenants and said that nevertheless, the offer of the Ikea cooking set is still there. The next day the tenant issues me with a breach notice saying that I have not provided the tenant with an essential service by installing a standard electric cooktop or a cooking set of equivalent quality (to what they have). What do you make of this?
