If you want to do work for your landlord to lower the amount of rent that you pay, be sure to:
- agree on how much your labor is worth
- get at least minimum wage for your work
- make a written agreement for the time and value of the repairs. Create two originals so that you both have an original with the date of the agreement on it.
- keep track of your time
- keep receipts for materials
