Getting Repairs To Your Unit

posted Sep 8, 2014, 1:24 PM by Laura Hoover
If the lease states that the landlord is to make needed repairs, the renter should give the landlord written notice of the needed repair. The landlord must make the repair within a reasonable amount of time. If the landlord does not make the repair, a renter has options:
  • if the unit is uninhabitable without the repair, terminate the lease
  • stay in the unit and sue the landlord
  • make repairs and deduct the cost of the repairs from the rent due
