I live In Kentucky and me and my fiance rent a house for $1200 a month. We have lived here for three months, and about three weeks ago our air conditioning went out. It is burning up in our house and has since it went out. My fiance works maintenance and since our landlord's technician was taking VERY long to get to our property (it took two weeks, and then he said he had to order a part and went off on me for asking when he should have it), so I suggested for our landlord to hire my fiance for the job.
He hired him for the job. My fiance got the old air conditioner out, and has been waiting for our landlord to give him the money to buy the new air conditioner, but he keeps post poning it. I work at home, so it has become an issue being so hot in the house. It has also made us change plans with family twice now, because today is easter and our house is an oven.
I'm not exactly sure what to do at this point. $1200 is a lot to pay for rent, especially when you don't have air conditioning. What can I legally do about this? Our landlord doesn't seem to really care that he isn't providing us with air conditioning and I'm getting to the point that I am just ready to move. We have had multiple issues at our house and it has taken him weeks to get them fixed (if he even bothered to fix it).
What can I legally do? Is he required to provide air conditioning? Is a month a normal wait time for this sort of thing?
