    A dodgy aircon unit isn't a valid reason to withold payment of rent and if you do the landlord will be doing the suing. Antagonising the landlord is unnecessary and counterproductive. There's no need for a confrontation at this stage. Just write and ask firmly but politely for the problem to be fixed within a certain period of time. If nothing happens then get the 3 quotes, go with the cheapest and deduct from the last month's rent.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I have no intention of withholding rent. It's not legal to so for this problem. I can't deduct repairs from the rent for this either. Texas law seems biased in favor of the LL.

    I had one disagreement with my landlord regarding their pet policy that magically changed; all it took was $400.00 to an attorney who then wrote a letter. I was out of my lease with my deposit. Document everything; get the daily temperatures, neighbors' kilowatt usage... all that stuff. You'll win in small claims; just document everything.

    If you only have 6 weeks left on the lease it's probably better to sweat (!) it out until you go. Not fair, but not worth getting into an expensive fight at this stage.

    Well, since my fiance moved out today (long story) it looks like I'm stuck here for the time being. 6 weeks is not a long time to find a new place, and I can't be bothered to move right now.

    The weird thing is, I don't feel as bad as I thought I would. Maybe I don't love him as much as I thought I did, or maybe it's (perhaps foolish) optimism that he'll realize how badly he fucked up.

    Otherwise my life is pretty good and I'm a pretty happy person so I guess that helps me get through the rough spots. Either that, or I've been through so much in the last two years that I'm just numb to it. I dunno.

    According to a door hanger on my front door, they fixed the AC. I told the property management people to send me a copy of the invoice. I want to see what they did. I may bring in my own guy to double-check.
