Answer: Under the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, the landlord is required to (among other things) “comply with the requirements of applicable building codes materially affecting health and safety”; “make all repairs and do whatever is necessary to put and keep the premises in a fit and habitable condition”; “maintain in good and safe working order and condition all electrical, plumbing, sanitary, heating, ventilating, air-conditioning and other facilities and appliances ... supplied or required to be supplied by him”; and “supply running water and reasonable amounts of hot water at all times, reasonable heat and reasonable air-conditioning or cooling where such units are installed and offered, when required by seasonal weather conditions” (A.R.S. 33-1324). When a tenant has a rent-to-own lease, the landlord sometimes insists that the tenant, rather than the landlord, is responsible for making repairs. The rent-to-own lease sometimes says this expressly. If you would like legal assistance in confirming that your landlord should fix your A/C, you may wish to contact your local legal aid agency: Southern Arizona Legal Aid, Inc.
