I watch Peoples Court a lot and this is a common problem
Back when I was renting...many, many moons ago...I used this technique to bring the junk hole I lived in up to liveable status. The landlord always bit*hed and moaned, but never refused. I left the place in great condition to rent to the next people, so he was probably happy in the end.
Just don't over-do it....keep it reasonable.
