Hard call to make. But one you know, deep down, that will have to be made at some point over the coming weeks. There will be no avoiding it. If you hold off you will simply be put on the spot by the landlord. Be made give an answer there and then. Weigh up your options. Do you like where you are living? Apart from some issues with the place. If so address these issues with the landlord. That you like the place but there are some issues that have not been resolved. If he sorts them out, which I assume is his job, you will be willing to stay. If not that you have to start looking for a new place. As you don't want to get dumped out of one place when the time is up and have nowhere to go.
