Send the landlord a certified letter and give him 10 days to fix the problem.
If he will not respond call an attorney.

I agree. In CT you can make any repairs that affect livability and deduct from rent if you made a reasonable effort to give the landlord notice and opportunity to fix it.. or that's at least what I remember... :)


I would write your landlord a certified letter stating what repairs are needed and agree to discuss the rent increase after repairs are made... OR ELSE you will find a new rental. In this market, he should do what he can to keep you!

If your landlord is not fixing things critical for the livability of the place, the landlord may be in violation of state laws.     In some states (and I don't know Alabama rules), you can bring in a repair person and deduct repairs from the rent after a reasonable amount of notice.  (Please check your state's website.)  

Upping rent is probably a separate issue, but it sounds like it may be time to move.
