Does my landlord have to fix my leaking roof in my laundry room?

Lake Isabella, CA |

My laundry/storage room has a leak. It is not part of the house. I have contacted my landlord multiple times and they said they will not fix it because "it's not part of the house" and that if we want it fixed we must pay for it. Does my landlord have to fix this? And if so how would I go about doing this?

Thanks for the help.

it's landlords responsibility . you're renting it and its not usable with a leak. you have a repair and deduct remedy though. get the leak fixed and take it off rent
