im currently leasing a two-bedroom apartment. recently my landlord said that he is planning to renovate the only bathroom in the unit. there are some repairs needed to be done with the bathroom fixtures; the landlord's main reason, though, is to expand the bathroom's area. thus there will be a considerable amount of work that would be done.
there is an outdoor bathroom a 10-20 meters away from the rented unit; it can be easily reached if the weather is fine. but if it's raining, it's very inconvenient to rush to the outdoor bathroom when one needs to heed nature's call.
i've done some research and found out that the lessee is only obliged to tolerate work if there's an urgent need for repair. however, the bathroom is still in good condition.
am i obliged to tolerate non-urgent repair work in the rented unit?
enjoying easy access to a bathroom is an essential part of civilized life. i feel that it is not just to do some bathroom renovation work and deprive me and my family easy access to a bathroom while im still renting the unit. can i use this as a ground to cancel our contract of lease?
thank you for your time reading this.
