You have several options. You can pay the rent and sue the landlord for breach of the lease agreement or you can withhold the rent. If you choose the latter, the landlord will presumably start an eviction action and you will have the opportunity to have a habitability hearing after you post the disputed amount into Court. Thereafter, the Court may grant you an abatement as a result of the lack of habitability. Should you have any questions I suggest you contact an attorney.

Landlord and Tenant Law
Real estate attorneys who are knowledgeable about landlord-tenant laws can assist both property owners (landlords) and renters (tenants) through all aspects of a real estate transaction. Landlord-tenant lawyers can ensure that landlords are in compliance with all housing laws; negotiate, draft and reviewing leases; work to resolve disputes between the property owner and tenant; and handle eviction proceedings. Whether you are a residential or commercial property owner, or are renting an apartment, home, office or warehouse, it pays to consult with a real estate law firm after purchasing investment rental property, before a lease is signed and if you encounter problems during the landlord-tenant relationship.
