That sounds like a good idea. While it sounds good, I could not attach the junky stove though just for protective reasons -- what if that's a hazard of some sort in the stove? I don't want to be responsible if anything bad happens and I can't prove it...

Perhaps I'll put in an old stove but without attaching it. There is one sitting in our basement and it's been there for years. The LL has since sold the building.

How much does a used stove cost anyways? Can it cost as much as a new one?

: If the LL told you to throw out the old stove, and you can prove it--you have voicemail or whatever--then fine. It helps. But it seems to me that if you leave the apartment without a stove, the landlord is going to sue you. I know, it's wrong etc., but that is the risk you run. I dont know the legal principle. All I know is that landlords sue under such circumstances.
: So here's an idea. Why not take your new stove with you and replace it with any old junky stove you can find? As long as it is hooked up to the gas, if it is a gas stove, I dont see how the LL can sue you.
: How can he prove it isn't the old one?
