None... period.. He is just foolish and has misplaced or lost the part or it was never included and he is frustrated and trying to blame it on you..

However, if you are a month to month tenant, then he could decide to terminate the tenancy with a 30 day written notice at any time. The same applies to you.

.

As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
