Hi Im Chris Borkowski, you know me as “Condo” Chris and I’m a Broker with Remax Hallmark right here in the City of Toronto.

Today I’m back with another hot tip for renters.
Lets say that you’re renting a house and there is snow shovelling to be done or grass to be cut. Who’s responsibility is that?

That responsibility falls on your landlord. A landlord can not make you cut grass or shovel snow.

Now lets say that you are paying $1000 a month rent and your landlord offers you $100 to shovel the snow.
Can you take that?   Yes you can!

Does that mean your lease now becomes $900? No it Doesn’t. Your lease is still $1000

Make sure if you decide to cut grass or shovel snow that you set it out in a separate agreement. That way you aren’t breaking your lease if you decide you don’t want to do it anymore.

I hope you enjoyed todays tip for renters.
