The problem here is that the re-frig cant be repaired unless we change both doors. That cost is more than the cost of the ref-rig. But the re-frig is still working and operational. We tried stainless steel cleansers and scratch removal but it doesn't work. Scratches are too deep on both doors.
It seems excessive to charge them for a new fridge even though that is the cheaper of the two costs compared to replacing both doors. I don't see this are the proper way to charge when trying to be fair.
Of course tenants argue they didn't do it at all, etc.
Re-frige is say $1000 new when moved in and we can show receipt of purchase. It was say 2 years old when tenants moved out. Not sure what tnhe expectation on fridge life is now days.
What would be exceptable method to charge tenants?
