No heat for 24 days straight ; LL has now repaired the unit . We feel that we are entitled to a rent reduction for those 24 days where the The breach of the implied warranty of habitability was violated for the broken heater . Is the logical solution is to apply California Civil Code Section 789 . 3 ( deduct $ 100 per day ) as a formula for rent reduction or is there another formula that we should employ ? Our Lease : " Rent shall be abated as the date premises become totally or partially uninhabitable . The abated amount shall be the current monthly rent prorated on a 30 day period . * * * If the agreement is * * not terminated , Landlord shall promptly repair the damage , and * * rent shall be reduced * * * based on the extent to which the damage interferes with tenants reasonable use of premise . "RE: "based on the extent to which the damage interferes with *tenants* reasonable use of premise" Three tenants were affected by the lack of heat and two work from home, so the recent Valley cold-snap was unbearable and we had to use the oven just to stay warm.
