How should I go about charging a renter for carpet damage?


Answer by  goodmommie (204)

Well if the renter lived there less than 7 years you can take it out of the security deposit or take them to small claims court. If they lived there 7 years or longer you most likly won't get anything for the carpet.

The amount of the cost of the carpet repair is removed from the renter's damage deposit. If there is no damage deposit, it should be billed to the tennet. If not paid, damages could be sought in civil court.

Your best solution is to sit down and speak to the renter with a mediator. Come to a solution you both find is fair. The renter is responsible for the repairing of the carpet until it is like it was when he or she signed the rental agreement.

Get the carpet repaired or cleaned and give the tenants the bill if they do not pay add it to the rental if they will not pay for the damage.
