Is it my Responsibility to remove the carpet then I vacate my apt.


when I moved in 22 years ago there was a dirty carpet and old tiles on the floor which I replaced. Now that i'm moving the landlord wants me to remove the old carpet and tiles at my exspense, other wise I will not get back my security deposit. I don'w see this in my lease I'm a good tenant and don't think this should be at my cost, He is putting in wood floors, a new kitchen and bath for the new tenant.

    I dont think you have to. You shouldn't have too. I always shampoo my carpets when I move.
