Q: Tenant landlord law explanation - AL Can someone please explain what this means exactly? The part about the 2 days
UNIFORM RESIDENTIAL LANDLORD AND TENANT
ACT ARTICLE I GENERAL PROVISIONS AND DEFINITIONS PART I SHORT TITLE,
CONSTRUCTION, APPLICATION AND SUBJECT MATTER OF THE ACT
101. Noncompliance by the Landlord - In General
(2) If substantially the same act or omission which constituted a prior noncompliance of which notice was given recurs within 6 months, the tenant may terminate the rental agreement upon at least 14 days' written notice specifying the breach and the date of termination of the rental agreement if the breach is not remedied in 2 days of receipt of notice.
How does this relate to repairs or does it? A couple months ago, the AC broke and was fixed within the 14 days. Now, the AC is broke again, do they still have 14 days to fix it or is it 2?
A: If the landlord breaches the lease but then cures the breach after receiving written notice from the tenant, but then landlord commits the same breach again within six months, when the tenant gives written notice of the second breach, the landlord only has two days to cure; otherwise, the tenant can end the lease by giving written notice to the landlord at least 14 days before the date the tenant chooses to end the lease.
