Hello, Hope someone can help me out.
Who is responsible for painiting the house when the tentants move out? The reason I am asking is because I have been living at this same place for almost four years. Now, my landlord is expecting me to paint all walls in three bedrooms, three bathrooms, living room, dining room, hallways, basement and gargae. Also, he expects me to replace all carpets. The house is in good condition. I hired carpet cleaner to clean all the carpets and had maids came over here to clean everything include kitchen applicances.
Now, he is expecting me to pay him $1600 for carpets and 1200 dollars for painting. He said that the carpets were brand new when I moved in but now the carpets looks clean and nice. There are NO stains or spots on any carpets.
I thought we had the right of having "wear and tear" unless there is MAJOR damage which I understand but there are none on the carpet and walls. So, who is responsible for that? Please help me. Email me.
Thank you so much.
