Have lived in duplex for over 20 years. Carpet is over 30 years old. It needs replacing, but landlord won't. It is threadbare in spots. One bedroom carpet got wet and moldy from leaking ceiling. Landlord won't even fix ceiling. Unit hasn't been painted in over 20 years. Landlord feels it looks okay. Have washed the walls for 20 years, but they look worn, dingy and shabby. Rent goes up, but no repairs or improvements ever made.
There have been several posts about this landlord. If they are not taking steps to keep the property in good condition, consider moving out.
