Am I responsible for this repair?
I am currently in a home lease (7 months in of a 36 month lease) with an option to purchase after 24 months. The landlord put in the lease that we were responsible for all repairs & maintenance. He also put in the house contract that all maintenace is considered routine. I’m not sure why that is even part of the option to purchase contract. I read that Ohio law says the landlord has a responsibility for certain repair and can’t assign that responsibility to the tenant.

Hi Jessica. So sorry to hear about your problems on maintenance repairs. You are correct it is your landlord’s responsibility to do maintenance repairs on the rental unit and also to make sure that it is safe and in habitable to live in. Since your landlord failed to give this to you then you have all the right to file a complaint against him. You can either file your complaint through your local county or through the RPA. Here is the link to the RPA complaint center http://www.rentalprotectionagency.com/complaint_center.php?id=51dd308610038
