If Landlord is required by the lease to provide A/C you have a claim for breach of Contract.
Can you simply pay then withhold rent? No - That will be a very risky move as A/C is not protected under the Warranty of Habitability.
If you can't get this resolved with your landlord I recommend having an attorney draft a demand letter to your landlord.
Good Luck!See question

The landlord may have the right to terminate your right to storage, but that does not mean that you automatically forfeit your personal property.
If you cannot get this worked out with the landlord you should contact an attorney to assist you in recovering your personal possessions.

It is impossible to determine the legal obligations under the verbal or written lease here.
Nevertheless, if a Sheriff is called explain to the Deputy and show him you have established residence in the home. It is unlikely that he will force you to leave without a Court Order. If you are served a Summons and Complaint you should contact an attorney, this will be your opportunity to explain the situation to a Judge.

Are you required by your lease to wait 30 days before initiating an eviction for failure to pay rent? I doubt it, but your lease and the surrounding facts need to be more closely explored to be able to assist you in resolving this issue.
I recommend you contact an attorney to assist you with a roommate eviction.See question

Will your landlord attempt to hold you responsible for lawn damages? That is a question only your landlord can answer.
If he does do you have a defense that the landlord failed to dewinterize the sprinkler system? Maybe, I suspect that there are a lot of additional facts which will need to be considered.
If your landlord attempts to charge you for lawn damage, you should contact an attorney to assist you in defending yourself.

You have a right to be represented in Small Claims Court as a Defendant. However, the attorney most enter the case at least 7 days prior to your summons date.
Unfortunately, if there is no contract it is unlikely you will be able to recover the costs of your representation. But, you may have damages to assert as a counterclaim.
Contact an attorney to review the facts of this matter.

Does your landlord have the right to terminate your lease early because of a previous breach? Not likely. You should review your lease to determine any rights of termination. If your landlord delivers a written demand or a summons and complaint you should contact an attorney to review the lease and defend you from your overreaching landlord.See question
