My garage door has broken and my landlord denied repair -

Customer Question

My garage door has broken and my landlord denied repair - who is responsible? Is this considered tenant maintenance? If so does the 'garage' have to be cited in the lease?
The garage 'system' is a bit old and creeky - when shutting it today it failed half way, many of the wheels came off and we had to manually shut it - locking my vehicle inside. I skimmed through my lease and really don't see how this is my responsibility.

Did it simply break and come apart, or did you do anything that caused this to happen?

.

What do you mean the claim was rejected? Are you saying the landlord refused to repair the door?
