What Repairs Am I Responsible For?
The landlord`s responsibilities are defined in more detail in local ordinances and codes available from your local government. Many of these ordinances specify time periods within which certain repairs must be made. The ordinances may also allow a tenant to pay for the repairs themselves, and deduct that amount from the rent. This can only be done after written notice is given to the landlord asking that repairs be made, and a specified amount of time passes without the repairs being done.
The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
