Did you know you can haggle how much rent you pay?
This tactic is especially fruitful when renewing your lease.
The landlord would much rather lease to you for a cheaper price then face having to get a new tenant, one who has not established the same relationship of trust as you have.
We should add that if you are consistently late with rent, your landlord will most likely be opposed to lowering your rent.
