My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: CA
Apartment has corian counter tops. A small crack appeared on the surface to the right side of the stove last year, and has now grown into a huge ugly one. When informed, LL claims that the entire kitchen counter-top including the slabs on the other side of the stove have to be replaced due to color matching and is demanding almost $5000 to repair the counter-top. Caims that I caused the damage by placing hot pots on the top (no, I did not - this is my 7th year here and the crack only appeared last year. I did not suddenly start placing hot pots on the surface last year).
What can I do? Is there anything I can do at all? Please can you help me? Thank you for your feedback.
