To explain what happened in our situation, it was the coldest winter Tulsa has had in a number of years (well below freezing). Our water heater stopped working, so we had no hot water. The placement of the water heater did not help either. It was in a storage space that had absolutely no insulation so the water in the tank froze and then busted our pipes. This pipe burst happened after not having hot water for several days. By the time we had decided to break our lease agreement we had been without hot water for five weeks. We were able to break our lease without any repercussions because hot water is classified as a 24-hour emergency under the Landlord and Tenant Act of Oklahoma, which means he had to fix it within 24 hours of being notified or however much time we gave him. He did not fix our water heater and then threatened to sue us for breaking our lease. He told us that he was "putting out other fires" and would get to us later. Turns out that he wasn't helping another tenant with an issue, HE WAS GETTING ANOTHER HOUSE READY TO PUT ON THE MARKET. We sent a formal letter notifying him what laws he breached and when our lease would end (Jan. 28). We moved out on the 27th and he put our house on the market that same day! Our lease hadn't even legally ended yet. Needless to say, he should not be a landlord and he should not treat his tenants with such disregard.
