Renter problems, any help appreciated!

By admin

I’m a new landlord so I’m not really sure about a lot of things, so any help would be greatly appreciated.  I rent out a single family home in Arizona, and it has one of those hard sided above ground pools. 

Recently, my renter requested that I replace the liner in the pool, about $500 to $700.  Am I really responsible for the liner in the pool?  Shouldn’t some of that be the responsibility of the renter?  What do I do?

Jerry, you will need to look at your lease agreement… Does it include the swimming pool? If it does then you should be responsible for the repairs. If it doesn’t list it, then it can be debated. However, in the future for items such as this, spell out the terms in the lease agreement, that way everyone will know what to expect.

I would suggest paying for the liner. By paying you will make your tenants happy and thus they will stay longer. You can even agree to pay a partial amount, like half. Try to be fair.
