Since you are renting you need to have the landlord hire a licensed contractor for liability and insurance issues.


Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.

That panel to me appears to be a 12 circuit panel with 18 circuits in it already. To make this right you need to move 6 circuits out of that panel + 2 more to make room for double pole breaker for the sub panel. Replace the tandem breakers which do no belong in the panel with full size single pole breakers.
