A friend of mine, renting an appartment in an apartment building, has a serious electric breakdown, due to bad electric wiring.
Almost certainly most or whole of the wiring has to be replaced and she is afraid she has to pay for it.
However, to my opinion it is the owner who is responsible for the (maintenance and replacement of) the electric wiring in an rented appartment.
1) Is this assumption correct and
2) how can the owner be obliged to repair or replace the electric wiring. as my friend thinks that the owner will be very reluctant.
For extra information: the installation is very amateurish, breaking basic (Peruvian) rules for electric wiring.
