I starting renting a manufactured home from a friend in

Hello...I starting renting a manufactured home from a friend in Venice Florida at the beginning of May. It wasn't unbearably hot then but within 2 weeks it was obvious the AC wasn't working right. The house gets up to 85 degrees during the day and since that started, it doesn't go below 80 at night. I've spent 8 or 9 nights at friends houses and have been unable to stay here during the day for almost a month because it's so hot. she had the man who recently installed the unit come out around May 20 and he said the unit was working fine. It. it wasn;t. I tracked the temp for a week, had FPL out here and she finally fixed it yesterday. Needless to say my electric bill is expected to be close to $300. I pay $1100 in rent and I'm on disability. She knew when I moved in I had to rent the spare bedroom to make this work, but I couldn't until this problem wsa resolved. My question is, do I have the right to ask for a reduction in rent this month and if so, what is a fair amount?Thank youJennifer Tobin

Again Mr Barrister, remember the problems I have been having

Hi, again Mr Barrister, remember the problems I have been having with the tenants that live in my basement apartment? That they have locked me out if my laundry room, they have another door that they can enter to use my washer n dryer, you told me I could get in the door anyway that I wanted to that it is a common area not part of the apartment? Is that written anywhere in the law of Tennessee in Washington county? If so where because I am not going to.p ay the electric bill because they have just been resetting to run empty for like 10 days now, no one will help me. I have written by email the DA he has not replied. This BS can not be the norm, I'm going to have to protect myself and get in that laundry room, the breaker box is in there too and one has blown, offer from PTSD from a abuses relationship and I may just snap. The DA should help me in some way. Thanks Shellie Giroux
