Appliance Damage by KB (GA) on May 17, 2018 @20:52


I rented a home to a lady and her children, that had brand new SS appliances. She was only there for 5 months. Upon vacating, there are several small dents in the bottom freezer door and a huge dent inside the actual dishwasher door. How do I do a fair deduction? Also, the carpet in one bedroom, I learned was covered in dog/human feces(which I don't know) Which explained the poop smell and I told that before learning of the condition of the carpet. She only did a very basic carpet clean (per the carpet cleaning company) I will be selling this home, can I charge her for the replacement of that carpet in that one room? She paid a nonrefundable PET FEE, but no deposit. This is my first and LAST time renting a home out.

If you collected no security deposit. Good luck on seeing any money from her at this point. The security deposit would be what you could have used to make repairs or deduct for damage caused by her. Usually it a waste of time going to court. You might win the court case. But collecting the judgment is another story.

You got the Pet Fee. Live and learn.
