    Default Landlord Won't Repair the Air Conditioner

    My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Can a landlord refuse to replace an air conditioner because of pet hair on the coil?

    And your state is?.>????

    Is this a window unit or a central unit?

    Is the unit damaged because of your pets hair in the coil?

    If so, has your landlord told you that you owe for this repair (or replacement) and you refuse to pay for this?

    Az No its an old unit it was going at when I own the the house. it is central. the a.c man didn;t want to clean the coil . he said it would be easier to replace than to clean.

    Maintaining the air conditioning is one of the landlord's statutory duties. ARS 33-1324.

    You're still not clear.

    Are you saying you're the landlord? And you don't want to replace the AC? In ARIZONA?

    no I am the renter, the landlord sold me the house a couple of years ago , but they let their loan go into foreclosure and I ended up quick claiming the deeded back to them and renting it from them. I didn't pay them during the foreclosure, the bank didn't even acknowledge me purchasing it.

    You either have a lease or you do not. If you do, you can see what it says about air conditioning. If you do not, your landlord has a plausible argument that you were responsible for the condition of the air conditioner during the period of your ownership, that he did not agree to provide air conditioning for the rental, and/or that the air conditioner condenser broke because you let the condenser get plugged up with pet hair.

    You could argue with him. You can attempt to exercise a repair/deduct strategy or you can replace it yourself. I suspect options 2 will end your tenancy rapidly.

    Possible remedies for repair are described here. Given the facts as shared, I don't have enough information to state an opinion as to whether a court is likely to agree that the repair is the landlord's duty.
