Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
If the lease here states landlord is to provide maintenance then you can sue the landlord in small claims court.Even though this is a rent to own the lease should state that landlord will maintain the property and you can sue here if you have to in order to cover the costs of repairs.Get an estimate here and send demand letter with it attached and tell him you will sue in small claims if unresolved.The landlord if the lease states it has a duty to undertake necessary repairs here in Oklahoma.Small claims suits may be brought for amounts in controversy not exceeding $7,500.00.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
Does it state that he will provide maintenance and repairs.You can always threaten to leave and quit paying.It really comes down to the contract terms.If he agrees to provide the repairs he has to do so.Check your contract and again you can always threaten to default here if you have too.
I will opt out here and leave this for Oklahoma expert.Please don't respond or rate it will slow down the process.Good luck to you
