Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
He absolutely does not. Your lease is a binding and enforceable document and the landlord is stuck with the rent through the term of the lease. The fact that the furnace went out and he had to replace it is simply a risk that a landlord takes in being a landlord. It's not the tenant's responsibility if the landlord incurs such an expense. Just as you would not, as a tenant, have the right to tell the landlord that you had some unexpected expenses and so you were lowering the rent, neither does the landlord have the right to increase your rent unilaterally.
