You’re one lucky tenant, and one not so swift landlord, if this is so, with a lease probably not drawn by a commercial RE attorney. My dad is 85, owns commercial property, gets around on a walker, has short term memory problems, and I’m glad his tenants handle all the maintenance. I’ll be darned if I have to go around checking on his dead trees, and toilets.
The way you describe your lease, you can even call him up about the a not flushing, which makes it no different than a residential property.
I’m not sure about “act of God”, but if this is so, his “general liability” insurance would most likely not cover.
