1. Newman decided to rent his home at 32nd and Chestnut Streets. On January 2, 2010, he met with Kramer to discuss terms of a two year lease. Kramer noticed that there were no air conditioning units in the home. He told Newman that he would not rent the home unless Newman installed Commando air conditioners before April 1, 2010. Newman responded, “Don’t worry. I’ll have a Commando unit working in every room of my home some time in March.”
On January 2, 2010, Newman gave Kramer a document with explicit terms for rental of his home, with the terms to begin on February 1, 2010, and to end on January 31, 2012. These terms included the monthly rent of $1,000, and a listing of obligations of both landlord and tenant. Newman signed his name at the bottom of the paper, and dated it January 2, 2010.
He phoned Kramer and told him to look over the document, and if he agreed to it, please sign his (Kramer’s) name next to Newman’s, and to date it and give it back to him. There was no mention of air conditioners in the document. Kramer signed the document, and dated it January 5, 2010. Kramer gave Newman the signed document and kept a copy for himself.
Kramer moved into the home on February 1, 2010, and has paid his monthly rent on time. It is now June 16, 2010, and Newman refuses to install air conditioners in his house, even after repeated letters and phone calls from Kramer urging him to do so.
Kramer asserts that his lease is enforceable and Newman must install the Commando air conditioners. Discuss in detail Kramer’s rights to have the air conditioners by finding and discussing all legal issues.
