Can Tenants Deduct the Cost of Repairs from the Rent?
Some states allow tenants to deduct the cost of repairs from rent if certain procedures are followed. The rules vary from state to state, and tenants can be evicted if the state’s procedures are not followed or if the state prohibits it. For this reason, tenants should be very careful when using this remedy to fix their problems.
