John Roska: Working in exchange for rent

Q: My landlord and I agreed when I moved in that I'd work in exchange for rent. I painted and did plumbing and electrical repairs. Now the landlord won't give any credit and says I owe rent. How do I make her give me the agreed-upon credit?

A: You probably can't, unless you can prove "the agreed-upon credit." If there's no agreement, there's no credit.
