: you.

Tenant Net:

Does this mean that if you have no stove and the refrigerator does not work, and you have asked, through your attorney even, for them to be replaced twice & for other repairs to be done and nothing has been done, that you are "off the hook" & may leave & the landlord can't sue you for abandoning an (untenable) lease? I'd appreciate your advice very much as to what options I may have here. Thanks!!
