Do landlords have to paint and shampoo carpets between tenants, thereby making it illegal to charge a tenant for those services
If so, what is the exact law reference number so that I may quote to past landlord?
THANK YOU

    LEGAL DISCLAIMER
    Mr. Sarno is licensed to practice law in NJ and NY. His response here is not legal advice and does not create an attorney/ client relationship. The response is in the form of legal education and is intended to provide general information about the matter in question. Many times the questioner may leave out details which would make the reply unsuitable. Mr. Sarno strongly advises the questioner to confer with an attorney in their own state to acquire more information.


  2. I am no licensed to practice in your state but I would be very surprised if such a law existed. What if a tenant only stayed in the apartment for a week and then moved because of a family emergency, a job relocation, etc.? Would you believe the landlord is still required to paint and shampoo carpets before a new tenant moved in? It seems unlikely that Colorado requires landlords to paint and shampoo carpets between tenants.
