My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
I live in a 2bdrm apt in Huntington Beach California. The landlord put new carpet in the apartment when I moved in 10 years ago. I've done what I can to maintain the carpet over the past 10 years, steam cleaning etc. However; it's very cheap, low grade, typical apartment carpet. After 10 years, the carpet is worn and as about as flat as tile. I know in other cities, such as Santa Monica, there are laws requiring replacement after so many years. Is my landlord required to do so after so long? The useful life of this carpet is no more than probably 5 years. There's nothing in my rental agreement that addresses this issue.
