lease allow it. At the end of the tenancy, the landlord and the tenant
may enter into a new lease with new terms regarding the rent, or they
may continue the expired lease on a month-to-month basis. FindLaw's Tenant Rights section is a great resource to reference to gain more knowledge about your rights as a tenant.

Repair issues are a separate matter and you have remedies to address those either as a contractual matter or as a landlord-tenant law matter.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
