I came home from 10 days holiday last week and the window and frame was missing in my bedroom. I e-mailed the landlord to let him know immediately and he phoned and asked if I had left the window open while I was away. I told him I was sure I hadn’t as I specifically rememebr closing it as I was going away for 10 days and wouldn’t leave it open.
The landlord is saying that I ‘Must have’ left the window open and it was ripped off the hinges by strong winds. He is now attempting to charge me for the replacement.
My question is whether this falls under landlord responsibility to replace this window?
A board has been placed over the window by the landlord as a temporary measure.
