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
