Re: Burnt plug socket and the landlord says that I have to pay its reparation

Of course it may depend on the details, but in an ordinary case (basically the renter plugged in a factory-made plug/apliance bought in Switzerland without fiddling with the fuses or the socket) it seems very much like a safety issue.

Safety issues are the landlord's to fix. That's what the regulations and inspections are for, be that for power, fire, or whatnot: To make living in that house safe. If landlord has been informed but doesn't react they risk being liable for the damage.

OP, unless you can prove you've informed the landlord (e.g. a written response, or demand for you to get it fixed) this looks like a good time for a registered letter.
