Kashering Kitchen Counters


We are moving house soon, and I'm not sure exactly what standard of kashrus the previous owners keep. Is it necessary to ask them what hechsherim they rely on in order to see if we can continue using all the surfaces? They are taking their oven/stove so we don't have a question there at all, but do we have to kasher the counters if they didn't use meat with the right hechsher?


The countertops, whether made of marble, Formica or Caesarstone, are kasherable. (For Pesach the Formica is not kasherable.) Since you do not know their standard of kashrus or their level of knowledge, I recommend that when you enter, you kasher the counter before putting hot food on it.
