What Maintenance Items Could I be Charged for?

The owner of the property is responsible for payment of repairs related to normal wear and tear. However, per the lease, tenants are responsible for any damaged caused to the property beyond normal wear and tear. The list below are only examples of what you may be charged for and are not all-inclusive:

  • Physical damage to walls, flooring, doors, screens, windows, appliances, counters, cabinets, etc.
    • Scratches, dents, dings
    • Paint, marker, etc.
    • Broken hinges, hardware, etc.
  • Accidental damage that was the result of a tenant action
    • Overflowing toilet
    • Unattended appliance such as washer/dishwasher
    • Unreported damage that gets worse over time such as a leak
    • Plumbing issues such as clogged drain lines in toilets, sinks, dishwasher, etc.
