Should house rental be cheaper if non fixable AC is broken before moving in?
I found a nice 3 bedroom house for 2,100 with pool. But does not include pool maintenance and gardener, which is an extra 120.00. So I agree to rent it out, signed contract and paid 2,000 deposit, but owner had me wait 2 weeks before I move in and have final walk through. So a week before we’re going to move in, owner calls and say AC is broken, and will not fix it if it cost over 1,000k, plus will NOT consider lowering the rent. The owner said if it was under 1,000k then she will go ahead and fix it. I need AC because it’s freakin hot out here in So Cal. She also stated that under law she does not need to lower rent if AC is broken. I found it misleading because in the craigslist posting, owner did not mention anything about garden and pool maintenance, also said there was AC included!
Also shouldn’t the broken AC come out of deposit from previous renters?
You would think that if the broken AC was the fault of the previous renters it would def. come out of their security deposit. There is no reason to penalize you, that is nonsense. See if you can find a renter’s advocacy group in your area and give them a call, they can usually advise you on stuff like this for free.
