I rent a house in St Pete Florida, and the AC unit has stopped working, The landlord is having severe financial and legal issues, and claims he can not afford to do the work or replace the unit. I know the landlord is battling foreclosure, and he probably just doesn't see the benefit of tossing away his money on a house he may not have in a few months. What are my options?
Defective housing is a building that has health or safety issues, often related to its design or materials used in construction, that make it risky to live in.

If you miss too many mortgage payments, your lender can start foreclosure proceedings to take ownership of the property, but it has to follow your state's laws.
