Tenant cracked a window. Advice needed

4 Replies

My tenant texted me today letting me know he accidentally cracked his bedroom window. He says the window is still intact and will hold up for a bit. Should I just get the window replaced and just deduct the cost from his security deposit? Or just patch it and just wait ?

Side notes: These are single plane windows that I was budgeting to replace in 2018. What's the best strategy?

A single pane replacement will be a cheap fix. Get it fixed, charge him, and upgrade when you're ready.

I wouldn't want a broken pane to break more, cut him or someone else, etc.
