West Virginia. The house I am renting does not have a working furnace. It did not work when we moved in and signed the lease. We were going to move because we couldn't live there through the winter without a furnace and our landlord said he would send someone to look at it and put in a new one. He never sent anyone. I looked up the housing laws for WV, and they state that he is responsible for the furnace. Is this true even though we signed a lease that said the furnace didn't work? Is it illegal for him to rent us the house without a furnace in it? I was told not to send him any more rent until he puts one in. Can he evict me for non-payment of rent even though he is not following through with what he said he would do?
