But sometimes you get to the point where the maintenance becomes an expensive pain.
Under the assumption that since the landlord buys maintenance in bulk he can get a better rate on it than you can?
The landlord is not in the business because they are charitable, but to make money. They buy the place and rent it to you, and pay for the maintenance on it, expecting to make a profit. If you bypass the middleman (landlord) you should save the expense of that middleman... less friction.
right?
