I never signed a lease... it is my 'friend' who owns the house. It was a verbal agreement. I can legitimately leave tomorrow if i want. So, considering that, there probably isn't any legality to this. So, I was wondering if it is standard that I have a working fridge. I don't care if its a new one or he fixes this one, I just want something that works!!! So i can drink cold :w:

Lease or no lease, I do think the landlord is responsible for the appliances that he provided with the place. He owns them, he is responsible for them.
Any place I ever rented the landlord was responsible for the appliances.

We owned and rented out a property here in Australia for a couple of years so, if you were in Australia i would say yes, if it was there when you moved in and was in working condition when you signed the rental agreement.
The stove in our rental property broke down and we were required to have it repaired for our tenants.
Your landlord is required by law to provide adequate services and to keep your building and apartment in good repair. If your landlord is not providing essential services such as heat and hot water or making repairs even though you have notified him/her in writing of the conditions in your apartment, you can sue your landlord in the Housing Part of Civil Court. This court is commonly called "Housing Court." The Court can order your landlord to provide services and make repairs. This action is called a Tenant-initiated action' or a Housing Part ("HP") Action. Individual tenants as well as tenant groups can start HP Actions for repairs.
