We’ve launched a newsletter on COVID-19 updates for renters but if you have any questions, let us know and we’ll look into it
Hi - I’m ok for the moment but I might be furloughed soon. Is there suggestions I can make to my landlord to reduce rent that only costs my time? Like gardening? Is there evidence of landlords accepting this or can they?
I’ve seen a couple of articles about this but not stories from renters. I’ll have a look into this and get back to you @Rosalie
Hey Rosalie, I looked into this and you can offer property maintenance as part of your negotiation. Also you are entitled to compensation for disrepairs, meaning it may benefit both you and your landlord to agree on simple repairs that reduce rent payments.
There’s some more updates that I’ve put in our latest newsletter but hope that helps!
