What are my rights concerning landlord maintenance? Posted on June 01, 2011

We rented a house two weeks ago and turned in our Move in Checklist. Yesterday, the weather was 91 and with the A/C set to 71 degrees, the house only got to 81 degrees in the main space. Upstairs (it's a bungalow) we barely had any cool air and it was close to the outside temp. I know Michigan law says something about heat being required, but do we have the same rights in a house that was rented with the assumption of having A/C or is the landlord correct in saying that as long as it reduces the temp 10 degrees that's fine?
