NC: Can landlords charge for their own labor? by Peter Alvin (North Carolina) on April 27, 2012 @07:47

                              
I hear each state has a different policy.

For cleaning above and beyond "normal wear and tear" can I, as a landlord in North Carolina, charge for cleaning and bill it to myself?

Yes, in some states. I will look up your state after coffee and see what I can find.

My tax guy says no, you can only charge for the supplies and materials. So. . .I just hire for the work and charge my tenants appropriately. No point in wasting my time and energy.

Just put it in your leases that your labor rate is $xx per hour for any repairs, and have them sign the lease. That's how I do it, never had a problem. Then just keep track of how much time you've spent on each item, and bill their deposit for it. If they sue you, the lease combined with the tasks you completed should hold up in court just fine.

We pay $25 a year for a separate business license for a home maintenance service, which in turn bills the apartments for cleaning and services. Nobody has ever questioned it.
