Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
If you have a lease, your landlord should not be able to raise rent unless the lease allows it. However, if you are a month-to-month tenant, then your landlord can raise your rent with proper advance notice (usually 30 days).
Under Kansas law, if a landlord who has a duty to maintain the air conditioner, and fails to do so, you can give your landlord a 14-30 day notice. That gives the landlord 14 days to fix the problem. If the problem is not fixed within 14 days, you can move out 30 days, after the next rent due date.
