We are a small not-for-profit organization in NYC. We rent an office space that has a central air conditioning unit built in. We first turned on the air conditioner yesterday for the summer season and it wasn't working, and informed the landlord. The landlord responded that he can send a maintenance team to look at it, but we would be liable for all the associated charges. We rent on a month-to-month agreement without a formal lease (we previously were on a termed lease, but it expired). My understanding is that even though landlords are not required to provide the air conditioner by law, if it was included with the property, they are liable to ensure it is in a proper working condition. Can they require us to pay for the maintenance and repairs?
Thank you all very much!
