Legal Question

Asked on: 7/29/13, 7:01 am

My uncle recently inherited my grandmother's home in NC. He agreed to allow me to move in and pay rent for $250.00 per month which included the electric. I moved my furniture into the house on June but never actually moved into the home due to no running water and no air conditioning. Unfortunately, there were more issues than he thought. A new water pump was purchased to get the plumbing working however, the air conditioner was never fixed. The a/c issue is the only reason I haven't moved in yet. I was still asked to pay the rent for the month because of the fact that my furniture was there. I paid it, however I don't feel that I should be paying rent for a home that I can't move into due to the conditions of no A/C. I went to pick up a few things the other day and the thermostat was reading over 100 degrees!!!! What are my legal rights as a "tenant" and what can I do?
