Repair Deductible

Your lease describes the amount of the "repair deductible".  The deductible is like a deductible in your car or health insurance. The tenant pays a deductible each time there is a repair and when maintenance is required.  The repair deductibles are much lower than the deductibles that you'll find on your car or health insurance.  A deductible has nothing to do with who is at fault or if any damage was done.  A deductible is a landlord's way of creating a partnership with the tenant so that both parties are responsible for keep the home in good repair. Deductibles also discourage frivolous claims and repairs.
