Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you
Is there a written lease agreement?
Does it address any limitations of the landlord's liability in the event of habitability issues?
Was there an expiration date in the lease term?
Since there is no fixed term, you are a month to month tenant. As such, the tenancy may be terminated on 30 days notice.
So, if the landlord was liable for the repair and the premises are rendered non habitable for the month then the the landlord would be responsible, until the end of the termination period for the month to month tenancy.
In other words, yes, the landlord would be responsible for the cost of comparable lodging for the period you paid rent.
