I've gotten much better at dealing with it. I tell them when they sign the lease that unauthorized deductions will not be tolerated. It happens to say it in the lease so I just read it to them and it sounds much more official. I reccommend not letting tenants lay out any expenses for repairs either even when its an approved repair. Because I don't like giving them the feeling that they have any part in dealing with contractors or repairmen tha I hired. Sometimes they'll take it on themselves to try and get other work out of the repairman and charge it to the same job that I ordered. George
