Legal Question

Asked on: 7/03/12, 1:40 pm

The water cooler on the home I'm currently renting is going out, I notified the property manager of the problem with the unit its been 5 days now and its still not fixed. I told the property manager that I was going to deduct 25.00 per day that the cooler doesn't work he notified the property owner and the owner said he will not allow that. Am I in my legal right to deduct money from the rent without his approval until he fix's the problem. The property owner wast's time and declines most every repair that I bring to his attention the owner is worse than a slum lord.
