MD law allows a landlord to charge a tenant for damage done by the tenant, through their negligence. On the other hand, if appliances are broken due to normal "wear and tear"? The landlord is responsible for the repairs.So the issue, in your case, will be was the damage caused by negligence of the tenant (their not properly using the appliance)? If so you can bill them? Otherwise, the tenant is not liable.
