Webster666 saidDO NOT deduct any amount from the rent you owe.
No matter what, this is grounds for your landlord to evict you.
Have you contacted your landlord to tell him/her that the AC is not working ?
If AC was included in your original rental agreement, your landlord has to continue offering it, which means he has to have it repaired.
If you are living in a large complex you will have a harder time getting anything fixed on a timely manner.
A smaller property like my triplex makes it easier to get things done. Not that all landlords care about your comfort like I do...
My guess is the transformers blew somewhere and parts are hard to come by on a holiday weekend.
I was fortunate my fix turned out to be an easy one.
Where I work in Las Colinas, was not so fortunate, they too lost power on Saturday. So my boss and I had to go in and dump everything in all the coolers. Milk, packaged yogurts etc.
Tomorrow at 6am I'll go in early to get all the rest out of smaller fridges since the elevators weren't working.
They are having to wait till tomorrow morning to get the parts to fix some of the top Execs. AC in their offices.
Oh, the fun tomorrow will bring!
