If the lease states "that any air conditioners must be installed in the room that has a dedicated outlet - which happens to be the living room" then the extension cord isn't the solution. The clause limits the AC to one room -- where the plug is.
Maybe the LL will say OK to the ext. cord / AC in bedroom -- but the wording of the lease is what controls. Since LL has already said "no" to current situation, then you shouldn't assume the LL will be OK with your plan -- unless you talk it through and hear the "OK" from LLs mouth.
: A heavy duty extension cord should cure this problem. No?
: : I recently received a notice from my landlord (NYC) that I had installed an air conditioner w/o permission in my bedroom, and that I would have to move it to my living room or face legal action. It says on a rider to my lease, that any air conditioners must be installed in the room that has a dedicated outlet - which happens to be the living room. The thing is - I want the air conditioner in my bedroom, not the living room. Can anyone give me some advice on this? What are my legal rights? Can I be evicted? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
