I had a mistake in typing my question. It should have read-

If a singlewide mobile rental has an HVAC system to start but it breaks down, does it have to be replaced with another HVAC unit or can it be replaced with a window heat and air unit? I don't want to put myself in any legal hot water. --96.33.xx.xxx

I would think a proper heating/cooling system would be part of the requirements for habitability. Cooling not so much in northern states. --50.107.xxx.xx

Gray area. Bottom line: will your tenant accept it? --69.80.xx.xx

Gray area. Does your lease state the house has central heat/air?

Bottom line: will your tenant accept the change? --69.80.xx.xx

When I rented out mobile homes legal opinion I received to this question was yes, central ac had to be replaced with central ac. Luckily never faced the situation, but added a paragraph to new leases that in the event of central ac failure I had the option of repair or replace. --99.203.xx.xxx

Sorry. Meant to say repair or replace with window units. --99.203.xx.xxx

You'll be ahead just to repair the ac/ heat central unit. It may hurt the pocket book at first but you'll have a better property and tenants. --99.203.xx.xx

South Carolina.... I would think that air conditioning is a necessity, not a luxury, where your rental is located.

Mobile homes don't have the best insulation. I would expect tenants to be thinking about moving if they were uncomfortably hot at home.

Your AC is so broken that it can't be fixed? Get a couple of different bids to fix and a couple of different bids to replace. The last time i had an AC stop working, it was a $20 part to fix it. The time before that (different AC) it was a $125 part to fix it. At least inquire about repair costs before you buy a new system. --98.146.xxx.xxx

This one is pretty clear.

If it was rented with central heat/air then you have to supply that. Window units would be considered a downgrade.

Lease does not have to mention it came with central air.

Lease would have to state if the central unit break you have the option of replacing with window units.

So fix or replace the unit. or try to work something out that the tenant agrees to in writing.

Or some examples in exchange if the tenant agrees.

A rent reduction or you will skip the next rent increase. --73.152.xx.xxx
