Make repairs: You and your tenant can agree that the tenant is responsible for minor or even major repairs, if you are comfortable with their skills. This could be risky, so you can only feel comfortable if the tenant has an actual license to perform such work, for example. B a tenant who is a licensed plumber repairing a leak sink or a licensed electrician repairing a defective light. The landlord has more leeway when it comes to resolving minor maintenance issues like a broken ice machine in a refrigerator, while cosmetic repairs, like exploded paint, can be postponed until the tenant moves. The tenant can perform exterior cleaning tasks such as window cleaning, as he is responsible for keeping the property clean and orderly.
