    Default What do you do when you damage something in a rental property?

    like, if you have a tantrum and break a drawer, for instance, but know how to fix them. Do you fix it yourself? Get someone professional to fix it? Contact the real estate so the owners can organise it using someone they want to use, then send you the bill?

    If I can properly fix it, then I do. If it's something more major, then I will get a handyman in to do the job (or my dad LOL)

    If I can, I fix it myself. The oven door handle came off the other day, I'll probably just glue it back on lol. I didn't break it though it just snapped for no good reason.

    Im a tenant and a Land Lord, if I damge something in the house I rent, depending on what it is and how major, I would organise to rectify or fix it off my own back. If it were something major, like a smashed window or something, I would ring the company that lets out the house to us and take it from there, but minor things I would sort out.

    As a Landlord, any damage to the property we lease out, is overseen by the real estate company who act on our behalf and they do not allow tenants to bring in their own trades people/contractors etc. The Real Estate has a list of approved tradesman. Even something as simple as changing a fire alarm is taken out of the hands of the tenants!
