I see a lot of questions from people who have problems in properties that they rent. When should a DIY question from a renter be answered with "Its not your problem call your landlord"?
Non-permanent improvements, like maybe some non-attached shelves, are good projects for renters. Actual repairs or permanent alterations should be the responsibility of the landlord.
What is the policy or best-practice here at DIY.StackExchange to help renters? When should renters be discouraged from DIY and filing a repair request with their landlord?
