My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: British Colombia (Canada)
I have an "unique" circumstance... I was living with the landlord and daughter for almost 2 years. She decided it wasnt working and that she wanted to move out, I am dating her brother/ the landlord son, so daughter was to move out and the son move in. She moved out but left her bedroom and attached bathroom a complete mess. I have scheduled professional cleaners to come (the shower is pink from bacteria it's gross I think the grout is permanently stained). I notified the landlord that carpet and house cleaners were booked (his daughter gets everything paid for by the dad/landlord and doesn't know anything about renting and won't reply to any of my messages) and that we would send him the bill (as no attempts were made on their part to clean, the landlord helped his kid move out). He responded that the bedroom and bathroom was not included in my rent ans that I have no say in what happens, as,
He claimed, that the messy rooms
Are the sons only..... we are dating ans had openly planned the messy room to be a game room and currently my bedroom to share. This whole thing is redundant, the landlord doesn't know any of the rules, courtesies or anything involving renters.
Basically I'm wondering if he is responsible to pay for carpet and room cleaning (a small a tenant I shouldn't Be responsible to clean up after an ex tenant) because the roommate left it In unacceptable condition upon leaving (sticky walls, gross carpet full of stains and hair)
