Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If you were served with a notice to vacate and fail to do so, the landlord will then have to proceed through the court, to evict you. If he does, it would be at that time that you respond and raise as a defense, the issue with the landlord refusing to replace the heater, the rental not being habitable and that the space heaters are outside the scope of what was agreed to and promised in the lease agreement and that the landlord is in breach. Essentially, you want to show the Judge that the landlord is in breach and wrong here and the eviction is illegal and should not be granted and either you can repair and deduct it on your own or the landlord fixes it.
