I need help because I am having problem with my landlord who is voluntarily reducing the equipment quality of my apartment for the same rent. Here is the story:
I move to zhongli on July 19th. The apartment use to have a big fridge (it is mentioned in the contract). I still have picture of it, it was about my size and I'm 1m92. But when installing, I quickly realized that it was not working. So I asked the landlord to fix it or to changed it. She first tried to fix it but the repairman said it was not possible. So I asked the landlord to provide me another one. After 3 weeks without fridge, she finally provide another one but size is ridiculous (1m10), some element are broken. This is clearly dishonest, so I proposed the landlord 2 options:
- She provides me a fridge of the same size of the old one with no damage and working
- I buy it myself but she will need to refund me or to reduce the rent
But she rejected both without any explanation.
In my mind, she was not honest at all. The rent level normally include the quality of the apartment equipment. She cannot reduce it and ask me to pay the same rent.
What can I do? Can I consider that she broke the contract? Should I call a lawyer?
