I'd do what Robert Ontario said and just send them the estimate or invoice from the person who did the work. Why bother doing this work yourself unless maybe it's just one small hole that's easy to do? --72.188.xxx.xxx

Anytime drywall mud is used to fill seams with, that is a time consuming job regardless of the 'hole size'. Usually it takes 3 visits to the jobsite from beginning to the finish stage. $150.00 would be my min. charge for even a small fist size hole. --68.63.xxx.xxx

Painting the wall is someone else's job. When the drywall patch is ready to prime, that is when the drywall job is completed. --68.63.xxx.xxx

My lease includes a fee schedule. Nail/screw holes in walls are 5.00 each - up to 1/4". Woodwork or cabinets are 12.00 each. Wall/sheetrock repairs are 25.00/sq ft.

These fees are on the low side but seem to pass muster in small claims courts where tenant advocate judges get to decide what's reasonable. Also these fees have greatly reduced the nail hole frenzies some tenants go on when moving in. --73.215.xxx.xx

I charge actual costs, parts plus time. Or whatever the professional painter charges me if it is a job big enough to call in a painter to do it. --76.178.xxx.xxx

I always try to keep extra/touch up paint after painting a rental. For my "Short term tenants" who make holes in the drywall I will calculate and charge accordantly. The last apartment had around 60 holes. It took me 15 minutes to fill the holes. Another 15 minutes to sand while vacuuming the dust. 15 minutes to prime each repair and 20 minutes to paint over all repairs. So around an hour to two hours including finding and mixing the stored paint. So a hundred dollar charge is fair.

The alternative is to charge the tenant for part of a painters service to repaint the rental. --47.155.xx.xxx

Wall repairs if larger than the base of a birthday cake candle often means cutting from one stud to the next and patching the seams, of course after the wall is smooth then it needs seal-prime-refinish to come very close to color,. many times you just paint from corner to corner. This is added to next rent cycle as outlines in OH5321, took 30 minutes to create damage and we allow them 30 days to pay for it. --76.188.xxx.xxx

Candace,

My lease is clear: We allow and average of 5 tiny picture handing holes per room. After that it's $1 per nail hole.

Anything that must be patched starts at $50 each hole.

Repainting is an additional $90 per wall.

We keep a well marked quart of touch up paint from the actual bucket used, on the top shelf of the kitchen cabinet. Best has been the empty plastic Dutch Boy containers from Menards. Saves us MUCH time! and sometimes the exiting residents do their own touch up. LOVE IT!

Another tip: we use a lot of the flat door knob banger plates and blank electrical plates to cover odd holes. Quick and easy. Looks OK in certain spots.

Holes in bedroom doors are covered with a white marker board for messages. Kids seem to like those.

BRAD --73.102.xxx.xxx
