Your landlord/owner should make all necessary safety and hazardous repairs as soon as possible, preferably before you move in or within the first 30 days of the lease. You should not be charged an extra fee or be subject to a raise in rent, nor should you have to pay for any repairs that will make residing in the rental safe.
