No, you have the right to withhold the rent until the landlord fixes the problems. Let him know that this is the reason you are withholding the rent. The agreement between you and your landlord is that he provides a livable place and you will pay for it, if he fails to do this ( heat is vital to living) then you have the right to withhold the rent. He can take you to court and you can show up and explain why you are withholding the rent, make sure you have pictures or some kind of proof. The courts usually decide that the landlord will have to fix these problems and you then will pay the rent after he has fixed these. There are laws on these.

no you do not

there are a few things that are required for rental properties

Sewage and heat are two of them

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

No, the landlord id responsible for this to be sorted out, if not tell them you wont be paying up until its fixed or would he like you to get it fixed and pay through the rent money just give him a receipt,

I bet he is quick to fix the place if he thinks there is a chance he wont get the rent..

You will have to back date the rent once its sorted though..

Yes you still need to pay rent. But there are different things you can do. First of all you need to send your landlord a certified or registered letter demanding that you need the heat and sewer problems remedied. What you can do then, is after a certain period of time and the things are not remedied you can contact the health department or your city inspectors. You can also place your rent in escrow where your landlord will not receive any money until everything has been done. I have done this myself. I wish you luck!

You can complain to Landlord Tenancy court and try to get an abatement if after several written complaints you do not get things that are his obligation fixed. I will say however that will put you on very bad terms and most likely he will have the upper hand with something down the road. Unless, this is a corporate type large complex and you are just a number, in which case they will know you mean business. Before doing filing to go to landlord tenancy court make sure you are up to date with your rent and keep copies of the certified receipts and the letters you sent saying that if it is not fixed by a certain date (check with your lease as to how much time he has, or your state laws, you will file for an adjustment and may fix these things and deduct it from the rent. NOTE: Just because your letter says that does NOT mean the court will allow you to fix anything nor deduct anything so do not do it, however you can say that because he is being given adequate time you will (you can only say it you cannot do it!)

I believe so as you signed a contract to continue paying him. However, the same goes for him and he should by law provide you a date that these things should be fixed.

Yes you are still living there.
Seek advice from your local housing authority.
Sewer must be adequate and supplied for you.
Depends on your area, landlords in my area are not required to provide heating.

Depends on your state, but in most states, there is a way to go about getting repairs made. Some do include allowing for the tenant to withhold rent, but it is rarely as straightforward as just not paying. For example, in Ohio, you may file for escrow with the clerk of courts in your district. This does not mean you can decide to stop paying, it means you file a complaint, and a court decides if you can pay your rent to the court, who will compel the landlord to make the repairs before releasing the rent.

Those who will answer this question with a straightforward "yes" or "no" are only basing their answer on personal experience. You did not mention a state, so it is not possible to completely answer your question, other than to state that you need to speak with a local tenant advocate/attorney.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



doanel
That is a safety issue (sewer) as well as quality of life issue (Heat). Contact the local Housing authority and report him/her. Or get a Lawyer. This is totally unacceptable.

Proud
Yes. He can have you evicted for not paying rent. However, you could take him to court if you wanted to, but that's a big long drawn out thing. I think it'd be best to simply find a new place to live.... with a better landlord.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



I'm tired of being serious
Yes. You can, however pay your rent into escrow, which will hold the money until your landlord fixes the violations. You can contact your city councilman about how to pay into escrow.

Probably; or at least escrow the rent funds and enter into a dispute. Talk to a lawyer or the county atty.

I researched this a while back and it turns out you need to put your request in writing, with a date. And make a copy of it!! In the letter, explain that you've asked for his assistance multiple times and haven't gotten a response. Tell him you will pursue a third party to come out and fix the problems and you'll be sending the bill to him. If you don't get a response, call your township and let them know. They'll usually send someone out to check it out, but hopefully by then your landlord will come through.
