I'm trying to find an answer to how to deal with my landlord

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No, I told the property manager that I will revisit this issue by the new year before the spring because the issue is related to the AC unit

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the property located?

Downtown st paul, mn

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I rent a retail space on 5 year lease. been here for 3 years. last summer the AC unit went off and I was told by a professional that it mus be replaced. It's a downtown location in a very old building and looking at initial cost of $15000.
