My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California, Los Angeles County.
Does anyone know or know where I can find, the legal definition of "maintenance" -- the legal definition of "repair" -- and legal definition of "remodeling".
Why do I want to know? I was maintenance and onsite manager for a complex. My old boss paid me a base pay to do small jobs. Bigger jobs he either called a plumber, or carpenter, or electrician, etc. If I had the time to do it, he would pay me extra -- my base pay plus more to equal what a plumber or electrician would be paid.
My new boss said he would treat me and pay me the same as my old boss (same property, just new management companies) says maintenance and repair is same thing. I remodeled two kitchens and he says that is considered part of my normal job. I did $6,000 worth of work and he wants to pay me $600.
