my AC still hasn't been replaced

This is ridiculous. I posted about 2 or 3 months ago about my AC going out. It needed to be replaced. So my landlord last month said she would have to wait until the end of the month to get all of the renters rent to replace it. About 2 weeks ago she asked about the rent I asked about the AC. She said she has it picked out but has to pay the rest of it off with our rent. I said when will it be installed. She said I can't get an install date until I make the last payment. I said I need your account number and I'll deposit the rent. That was 2 weeks ago. I haven't heard back yet about the AC. This is getting ridiculous now. We haven't had a decent AC all summer. Oh yeah we have a crappy window unit but that is it and doesn't do shit to cool the house.

I planned on being moved by now but I haven't found a place yet

My husband is fed up. He said if she hasn't replaced it by the time rent is due again he isn't paying her and I side with him this is getting fucking ridiculous. Our electric bill has sky rocket due to the stupid window unit that only cools the,living room. My dishwasher stop working she said she'll look at it when they get down this way and that was 2 weeks ago too whatever about the dishwasher but the AC shit is pissing me off now. It has been 3 fucking months ffs.

The whole unit needs to be replaced. $3000. For some stupid reason she was saying she want to put a $4000 unit in here. I don't know why but it is stupid. That is her talking out her ass.

Do you live in a state where ac is required by law, or is it considered luxury? Most states show dishwasher as luxuries.

Look up your states tenants rights, if you withhold rent without proper steps you can be evicted. That will screw your ability to rent elsewhere. Good luck

It is when the lease states here anyways it is the point that she promise to fix both and haven't. I pay rent for the use of both not rent for everything to break and her cheap ass to play for 6 vacation in 6 months but not her responsibility as a landlord

I would have been moved if it wasn't fixed in two weeks at the most. By the time you move, the heat will go down... I can't stand the heat I hate it! And it gets 150 indoors with no AC here.

Contact your City's housing authority and file a complaint.  I believe you can open an escrow account and put the rent there to be in compliance with the law while you're in dispute with your landlord.
