 my landlord refuses to fix the heat, can i withhold rent? If your landlord violates your rights, do not withhold rent. Instead,call us. Low-wage workers may call us for free consult.

If your landlord is refusing to make repairs to your home you may be tempted to withhold rent.  Do not withhold the rent, instead low-wage workers may call our office to discuss your legal rights.  A landlord may be able to evict you for withholding rent and, under Missouri law, it is unclear whether a landlord’s abuses may be used as a defense for non-payment.
