Q: We rent a single-family home that needs some work. We’re going to hire and pay the contractors, and deduct the cost from the rent. Our written agreement with the landlord includes our promise that we not allow a "mechanic’s lien" to be filed against the property (we lose our lease if that happens). What does this mean? –Jeb B.
