I am renting a home and my landlord is not assessing any of the problems we notify him of. We have bubbles in our ceiling due to the high amount of rain we have been getting, and we notified him over a week ago. We have also told him several time of several fire hazzards that are in the home, such as non opening windows and some frayed wires coming from the thermostat. Am I obligated to pay the rent if he is not keeping up with his part of the lease?

You should talk to a legal expert about your lease agreement and tenant/landlord laws in your county and state, not take advice from people on a message board (except this advice).

You could post this in this forum vs. louisville to expand your audience since it's not specific to louisville: //www.city-data.com/forum/renting/

Do you want to keep living there if the problems are fixed or just get out of your lease?

First, you need to put your complaints and concerns in writing and provide the landlord with enough details to include the dates that you also talked with him and send it via certified mail with return receipt. If you don't get results within a reasonable amount of time, you have a couple options: 1) write up a notice to the landlord to vacate based on uninhabitable conditions. 2) call health dept to get placed condemned. 3) fix the repairs yourself and sue the landlord for the difference. I'd go with option #1 if it was me.
