What exactly do renters have to provide renters with?

That was the question you chose for our Facebook Story of the Day.

Gary Eller is the Principal of Life Style Realty Group and says a renter has to make sure the property is up to standard code for the city.

Landlords do not have to provide appliances, but if they do, they must be in working order.

And one surprising factor--they do not have to provide you with air conditioning.

"If the air is there, it has to be in working condition, but not necessarily does air have to be provided is my understanding, but you need to provide heat," said Eller.

Eller says if you have any issues, to put them in writing to your landlord.
