My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
I have a written initial move out inspection from the landlord saying my washing machine was fine. A couple days later, she sends me an email saying that the washing machine has a leak and needs to be replaced. In the lease it says that the landlord is not responsible for maintaining the washing machine, but does not say that the tenant is responsible for it. I did notice the leak a week before we moved it, but it was really minor and forgot about it.
If it was not listed on the initial move out inspection checklist, can she still charge me to replace the washing machine?
