Suppose you are a tenant with a broken plumbing system due to old pipes. Sure, you could flip the bill to replace those old pipes yourself, but it doesn’t seem like that should be your responsibility. Even though laws differ by state, that instinct is correct; conditions that materially affect the habitability of a leased building are the responsibility of the landlord.
Using a Notice to Repair will place the landlord on notice that a defect exists that needs to be corrected. The letter not only keeps you compliant with any possible legal requirements, but it also creates a paper trail for you. Having all the correct documentation may be necessary if you are forced to seek further legal action due to the landlord’s noncompliance.
