What if my landlord won’t fix something in my home?
The Oklahoma Residential Landlord Tenant Act sets out responsibilities for both landlords and tenants. Such responsibilities are also outlined in lease agreements. As such, they are considered civil matters between a landlord and tenant and are not regarded as public nuisances. Bug infestations are also viewed in this manner, and it is up to the tenant or landlord to arrange for extermination. The city will investigate situations that pose an imminent hazard to a tenant’s or the public’s health and safety – including dangerous electrical connections or appliance installations, lack of smoke detectors, or inadequate heating sources and sanitary facilities.
