One of our rental properties in Kent, WA has a leaking bathroom, and we had to get our contractors in to do the restoration work. The work has already taken 1/2 month, and will likely take another 1/2 month to complete. The property has two bathroom, so the tenant will be able to use the other bathroom for day-to-day activities (the leaking one is the smaller of the two).
I am wondering in this kind of situation, do landlord normally give a rent reduction, and if so, how much do people generally give?
Thank you all!
From my perspective, the tenant is not getting all they paid for, so I typically give a rent deduction, especially if they are a good tenant and I want to keep them. Usually, they are happy to get the reduction and the upgraded property.
