Should I be charged for carpet replacement when move out ?
1 attorney answer
"I’m positive my carpet wasn’t stained at all." Can you prove that? Did you take pictures of the carpet right before you left?
"Landlord claims carpet was stained to where is wasn’t able to be removed" Can the landlord prove that you caused damages beyond normal wear and tear?
What the landlord is entitled to, if the landlord can prove that you caused damages beyond normal wear and tear, is the difference between the carpet without the damages caused by you and the carpet with the damages. The carpet with the damages likely is worth $0.
Used carpet has a value. You are not liable for the costs of replace used carpet with new carpet.
