You do not have to fix everything in the apartment. Your obligation is to return the property in the same condition it was in at the time you began leasing the property from the landlord.
If the price of fixing things exceeds the amount of the security deposit, then the landlord reserves the right to sue you for the difference.
I hope this helps. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Thank you.
If the fans and garbage disposal were working when you first moved in, then you will be responsible for fixing it.
Basically, you need to hand the property back to the landlord in the same condition it was in when you received it to not be responsible for repairs.
You're very welcome. Please don't forget to rate my response at your earliest convenience.
