No, the entire contractual agreement that outlines each party's legal responsibilities is contained in the written lease contract.

.

So if it isn't in the lease contract that you are responsible for this type of action, then you can't be held responsible for it..

If the landlord is attempting to charge you for this, then it is entirely inappropriate and would give you legal grounds to sue him in small claims court if he withholds money from your security deposit for it.

.

As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
