So I was in the process of renting out one of my homes (later decided to sell)
Anyways we were negotiating a chain link fence to be built for the front yard. (makes them feel safer)
So as I always discuss multiple situations we then came up with a way for that to be done. They can pay for it to be built and I would shave off a portion of the rent each month. This would provide a win win situation.
As they get the fence, I don't have to come up with the initial cost to do it. It provides value for me and it makes the tenant happy.
I would have told them they are welcome to have a nice chain link fence installed at their expense . And wouldnt have changed the rent .
Yea I would say the same thing that @Matthew Paul . You don’t need a fence they want one. Shouldn’t cost you anything.
