make sure your natural gas and electrical service to laundry area is up to code and properly maintained. If you furnish appliances, you're responsible for their maintainance unless your lease specifically states otherwise. If your appliances cause a fire your probably going to be responsible for the loss including tenant personal property and injuries. If your tenant's appliances caused the fire, it's on them. ALL FIRES are investigated by cause and origin people (arson guys) generally sent by the insurance companies. I've heard tell of fire losses caused by defective recepticales and wall switches that were properly installed and the insurance co's subrogated AND PREVAILED with the device manufacturer ! ! !

True, I am responsible for maintaining/replacing them, but at least they are new and in good working order, so I feel safer. I also maintain everything, not just appliances, really well. It scared me to think what could have happened with that dryer. A little prevention goes a long way. Nobody wants a fire, even if it someone else's fault.
