    It depends on (many) facts that we don't have.
    Based on what we've been told, what laws do you think have been violated?

    what other facts do you need to know.
    A landlord in California does not have to provide AC

    Giving you the benefit of the doubt, perhaps your earlier post was misstated?

    In your post that I quoted here, you state that the LL, by providing an AC after move-in, must continue to provide it, the same as if it had been provided at move-in. That is not (necessarily) true.

    You also state that "He is without AC and cant do nothing about it". That is a double negative, and is false. Doing nothing is certainly one of the options that the OP has.

    My original post and follow up comments summed it up, but i will simplify it for you.
    In California, he could try to make an argument that the landlord provided an amenity that was a condition of his lease (expressed or implied) and that he should continue to provide AC under this condition. However, CA law DOES NOT REQUIRE AC as a habitability issue.
    Therefore, it's my assessment that a judge would not require new AC units to be installed under these circumstances

    It's not a matter of simplification, it's a matter of clarity. You said one thing, I called you on it, then you said the opposite. Now you are sticking with your new position, and I agree with your new position.
