|Halacha - new house|
|Submitted by anonymous Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
If the house is newly built, there is no need to kasher the kitchen. However if the house had previously been used by someone who does not keep kosher then the sinks and counters should certainly be kashered. If you already used keilim they do not become treif, but try to be careful that hot keilim do not come into contact with non-kosher surfaces until you can kasher the sinks and counters.
