We rent a house for 1200/monthly. However we only paid 55 this month. This house is fucking horrible. When we rented, the owners assured us they were in the process to making repaires to the home and all would be done in no more than 3 months. However 6 months later, only 1/3 of the stuff needed to be done has been. So DH and I finally broke down and did it ourselfs. We hired a day laborer for the weekend and together the 3 of us did a few major repares. The repairs cost us 700ish in materials plus 60 dollars a day for the laborer and ourselves.
We included our receipts and attached a note as to why we had to detuct from our rent and that we will continue to with hold until he gets this house together. I know he will try to do everything in his power to evict us, but too bad cause we arent moveing until DS is finished with elementary.
