A: Look at the lease or have an attorney look at it.

As a general rule, the landlord is responsible for all repairs and improvements.

The fastest way to resolve this is to force the landlord to show you where in the lease/rent to own contract that you can be required to put in a well. Also, force the person to show you where in the two contracts they can void.
