A rental home I'm interested in was advertised as having a hot tub. After my rental application was approved, I asked the leasing agent to confirm that the hot tub worked. The day I went in to sign my lease (and on the VERY last page) was a note from the owner indicating the hot tub hadn't been turned on in 2 or 3 years and it would be up to me to get it repaired if I wanted to use it. The agreement is also worded in such a way that if the hot tub breaks (for any reason), I have to pay to fix it. Shouldn't it already be in working order if it was an advertised feature of the home? It would be like advertising a garage, then finding out the garage door doesn't work and being told if I get it fixed I can use it. This seems like misrepresentation. The hot tub was one of the reasons I chose this home over others in the area.Should the owner be required to repair the hot tub before I move in since it was an advertised feature of the house?
