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


I have an issue with the landlord after a plug socket explode and got black when plugin a lamp. It happened with another socket some years ago and I repaired by myself, but I cannot repair every one super old sockets from the flat.

The landlord sent me a letter saying that i was caused by an overload, then I have to carry on with the cost of the reparation.

The sockets are very old with a small rounded button and the 3 holes (not the sunk ones) with screw in the middle. Really cheap old stuff.

What can I do in this situation? I am sure that this will happen again with other sockets.
