My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: VA
My lease states that utilities are included. My a/c has not worked yet this season. State law says for non-included utilities that the landlord must provide "reasonable" a/c during the season. Would this apply to utilities included as well? If so, what exactly is reasonable? State law defines this for heating but not for a/c.
What recourse do I have? Can I deduct an amount off of my rent? Can I withhold rent? Is this considered the landlord breaking the lease??
