What are the tenant laws or rights to protect renters when there is no proper source of heat in the dead of winter?
We have been forced to heat our home with kerosene this winter when we should have the option for electric heat and gas heat in this home we are renting. The gas fireplace has never worked and they have never fixed it and now the electric heat has gone out as well. Our light bill has skyrocketed because we sometimes use space heaters for heat as well but using kerosene is not safe. I smell the kerosene all the time and being pregnant with that going on is not a healthy situation. It was 19 degrees last night and it was freezing in this house.
